Pete's pumpkin crop. I don't think we or any of our friends are going to need to buy any pumpkins all winter!

 More things I've knitted this year.

 Terrible over exposed photo of little cardi I knitted for baby William. I am learning to knit from the neck down on circular needles. And to follow American patterns, a challenge for me! I knitted the sleeves on 4 needles.
 A teeny tiny cardi for my  neice's baby who is expected in the Springtime. Copied from Pea  Soup, I love Ravelry! Made from neck down too although I didn't realise to begin with!
 A cowl for me...

 A cowl for Brita.
Paint Brush flowers or Elephant Ear bulbs, that are at the elephant ear stage now.

April birdies - blue wrens and white eyes

 Birdies outside our bathroom window. We had a bevy of quail come and live under the rosemary bush right beside our busy kitchen door and were happily exclaiming that our two hand me down cats were now obviously too old  to bother chasing birds and with that our 16 year old cat caught one..... ggrrrrrr

 Datura doing its thing again, smells so lovely at dusk.

I think I am going to run out of wool, drat!
