Welcome friends to Scattered Seed Samplers.
I can now officially breath a sigh of relief, all
Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club kits, Etsy and Ebay orders

Every year I get a craving for a good caramel apple,
how about you?
I'm having fun experimenting with some
non traditional ideas...
This is a very tasty choice if you love pears like I do!
Makes the pears look so wonderful for this
Autumn harvest time of year!
Do you like your caramel apples plain...
Using hand picked twigs work great for a
more rustic looking handle!
Or, do you prefer your apple with nuts?
I must have nuts on mine!
Here are some great ideas to make eating a caramel
apple a little less messy...
Apple chunks dipped in caramel with a toothpick,

Here are some recent farm field pictures...
We have lots of dried Queen Ann's lace all over the farm
and I love how it's surrounded by these sweet
little daisy like weeds.
Such simplistic beauty!
I love any kind of Sunflower plant this time of year!
Look at these colorful beauties, especially
the ones that are already drying up near the top!
Yesterday, to my surprise there was an artist
all set up on the roadside painting our second cutting
of hay bales in our field...
I stopped to chat with her on my way back from the
post office...she even uses a neat looking chair!
I love surprises, look at what was gifted to me this
morning by my friend Ona...
She had stopped early and dropped off these wild
branches of Bittersweet she found growing
in the woods!
She said this wild variety has larger berries than
the "American Bittersweet" she has growing by her house.
There was a cluster of an old wasp nest laying in the bottom of
my wheel barrow...I added it to the branch for a
Ona and I are planning a Bittersweet outing
next week, I can hardly wait!

A word fitly spoken is like
apples of gold
in pictures of silver.
Enjoy a great Autumn weekend!
