Wheelie Wednesday - Indian Pipes

Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn!

Guess what mom and I found in the woods today? Indian Pipe mushrooms!

I know probably not many of you are too thrilled about this but we've never seen them before in person and we're tickled pink that they live on our property! How cool is this?!

We also saw a beautiful red cardinal flower! It's considered a wild flower and it comes back every single year! We're very careful just to admire it and protect it and hope it never goes away!


The Marigolds are in full bloom now too!

And so are the Morning Glories!

Check out the HUMONGOUS tomato that's growing in our garden and probably can be picked tomorrow! It's an heirloom Aussie tomato! It would feed a family of 6!


Guess what else I came across?

Dad's Indian motorcycle! Do you think he'd notice if I took it for a spin?! I made sure I put my pumpkin wheels aside so I wouldn't scratch anything, doG forbid!

This will be my last posting for a couple of weeks as the family will be away! I'll be knitting my sweater and weeding to stay busy and maybe I'll think about inviting Guinness or Hector to join me for a motorcycle ride! We'll see!

See you all in a couple of weeks!

Love, Autumn

Im silly...I totally thought Maggie was the one who won the pawlimpics bronze for the paper towel! But it was Mitch!

I'm so proud of him! Hehehehe...sorry for the ooops!

That tomato looks like it could be a lot of fun to pounce on and throw around the yard. Don't give Maggie or Mitch the idea...they may do it! Hehehe!

Enjoy the bike ride! Just make sure its on a tricycle or something...I think the dad would be mad if you booboo-ed his bike!

Slurp!

We think the mushrooms are interesting, the tomato looks yummy, the flowers are beautiful, but that MOTORCYCLE ROCKS! Very cool ... man-dad rides too, but there is no sidecar for Booker.

Ruby Bleu said...

Try not to get into too much trouble while everypup is away. Not that you would of course, right Autumn!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Moco said...

You always show us the most interesting items. Those mushrooms are quite different. We would love that tomato. You could have lots of BLTs or salsa with that one.
How cool is it to have an Indian?
We will miss you while you are gone.

Saint Lover said...

Great pictures! I am drooling over that tomato.

Enjoy your quiet time while the family is away.

Lady Kaos said...

Mom's marigolds and tomatoes aren't doing so good, they didn't like being moved so much. They were planted in containers because Mom didn't want to leave them at the old house. Mom is very excited that the new house has morning glories and a ton of rose bushes!

Hana said...

Such pretty flowers!

My Mom made that Lemon Oat Bar recipe you blogged about the other day. She is not sure if she made it correctly. The top was really crumbly. She first sprinkled that top layer and patted it down gently, then realized about 10 minutes later (after she put it in the oven) that she was supposed to SPRINKLE that top layer on. So, then she started poking holes on half of that top layer and stuck it all back in the oven. In the end, the part that she stuck holes in and the part that was patted down still all was very crumbly. Was the top layer supposed to stick with the lemon/milk boiling up to the top? Anyhow, it was yummy! I got a little bite!
