Early fall on the pumpkin farm

Who could possibly live in an acorn? A gnat for one. Imagine how tiny it's bed would be. It's cup and spoon would be naked to the human eye. But the acorn would be as roomy as well,
an acorn.
Some diligent farmers are already tilling the soil for new seeds next spring. While bothersome crows wait for lunch.

Owls are busy filling thier burrows with herbs and the last of the wild asters.

Interlopers are tiptoeing about with golden treasure, ready to bolt if need be.

Some unruly mice are so thrilled at the prospect of fresh pumpkin seeds, they are dancing by moonlight with very little decorum.

And this potter girl is going to put new things in her shop tomorrow.
Happy early fall from me and all the farm peeps.
