Remember the pumpkin from the previous post that we grew here on the farm?
Well, here she is in her new life. We took one of the bridal veils and she looked happier than ever. The fascinator is an alpaca felted piece with a silk magnolia and white coque feathers. The lady pumpkin to her left is the flower girl. She is wearing the "Empress" camellia from my husband's garden. Looks like this model waited too late to go to the periodontist!
Sergio's boys were here this morning, so we gave them the jack'o lantern.
Wanted you to see the foliage here in north Georgia. Folks come from miles around to "leaf peep" every year. The footlhills of the Appalachian Trail is ablaze. This tree is a Sugar Maple over at my mother's retirement condo in Jefferson, GA. It has such beautiful seasonal foliage that I could not resist this one for your enjoyment.
Do you remember the cantor singing out every saint's name during the processional from the Pope's section of the Vatican as the coffin made its way to the piazza of St. Peter's Basilica? That chant was eerie and mystifying, it had tonality that stirred your soul. Does anyone know this chant?
