So we ended September visiting family. Living in the city makes me appreciate and miss the location of my parent’s house. It’s within thirty minutes to stores and has close neighbors, but with room for a large garden, woods and a natural spring, it feels secluded. Here are some pictures from our visit.
At the edge of the woods in one of the trees is a huge hornets’ nest. Eventually my dad plans to take this down and hang in his garage.

My parents hillside is full of pretty wildflowers and weeds. I love the golden rod.
Vita got my dad to pick the flowers at the top of the hill for her bouquet.
Last of my dad’s peppers, they thrived in his garden this year.
We left their house with a ton of potatoes to store in our basement, pumpkins, pine cones, lots of peppers and some antlers. My dad hunts every year and the extra unmounted antlers that he was keeping in the rafters of the garage have been calling to me for a while. I finally asked if he had any he wanted to give away.
