Welcome to Fall!

UPDATE: I have added a "Follow Prickly and Bitter by Email!" widget to enable easy reading and following by my devout blog readers. This widget is run by a second party called FeedBurner, and they are the ones that organize and run the service. I have tested the service, and confirmed that I do not have access to your e-mail address, should you choose to use the service. You would enter your e-mail address into the box, verify your e-mail submission by the captcha code in the pop-up window, then you will received a confirmation e-mail. This e-mail, from FeedBurner, will have a verification link which you click on to verify your e-mail. After that, every time I post a new blog you will have it sent directly to your e-mail inbox. I have also added RSS feed subscription buttons for both posts and comments, if that's your thing.

I figured as a welcome to fall, I should change my blog colours to reflect the season. So here we are back to orange and brown, the typical colours of fall harvest. It makes me think of pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving, two of my favourite holidays!

I was going to do a series on local agricultural species, but decided to save that until next year when I'm theoretically going to be running out of common local species to photograph and blog about. This is one of the downsides of living in a temperate climate and not a tropical one: fewer species, and a much shorter growing season in which to photograph! Something to look forward to for next fall.
