These two humbugs finish out the year’s series. For fun, the humbugs are posing in Thing Two’s pumpkin vine. He is hoping to grow his own pumpkin for Halloween.
In keeping with the cute bee beads on the summer humbug, here’s one of our neighbor’s honeybees collecting pollen in a pumpkin blossom.
How many humbugs can a pumpkin leaf support? All of them!
(If you take the picture fast enough.)
It has been both a busy and mellow summer. Thing One’s summer has been busy: first, a return trip to Philmont for NAYLE, then three weeks away from home for the BSA National Jamboree in Virginia, followed by a week of scout camp, and he’s currently finishing up the summer by staffing a NYLT session. Here’s Thing One at the airport, just home from the Jamboree. He’s not quite taller than his parents yet, but he’s working on it.
All those adventures exhausted the family travel budget (and then some!) so the rest of us have stayed home. Thing Two wanted a vegetable garden, and we’ve enjoyed tending it and watching his little crops grow.
