Perfect harmony, September Wonder and avocado toast

 - That's a bird feeder (there in the middle) that my late father gave me once - guaranteed to keep away squirrels (so far, so good.)  Click to enlarge to see a chickadee feasting on birdseed.  The feeder is designed for little birds, but the cardinals sit in the tray and eat the seeds that the little birds dropped.  Photo taken last weekend - it was a regular party there for a little while, cardinals and chickadees sharing a snack in harmony, but they all flew away except this one, when I loomed up to snap a photo with my phone.

 - Coworker Bobby went to Ellijay, Georgia last weekend to pick apples and shared these beauties with us.  This apple is called September Wonder.  Isn't that a lovely name?  It's a variety of the Fuji apple - sweet, crisp and delicious. 

- Look at the time there - I had a little photo shoot this morning at 5:43am.  A late summer peach, an avocado + two banana peppers that came from coworker Tony's garden.  I love that everyone shares.  And I have plans for that avocado for this weekend, inspired by this post from food52 called How to Make Avocado Toast.  Yes - there will be some avocado toast at my house this weekend.  :)

It's raining out - I love the sound of it.  And I love that it's Friday.  Happy weekend, y'all!

Very pretty - and we love to go up to Elijay and pick apples and play!

It's raining here, too. I hope the cold front it brings for this weekend will put me more in an autumn mood.
I do love the name of that apple!

Gorgeous. Send that rain this way please - and have a wonderful, restorative, peaceful and beautiful weekend.

I have three lovely avocados on my counter. Avocado toast here I come! Yum!

Have you seen the video of the squirrel trying to steal the bird seed and they greased the pole with Vaseline? It is hysterical.

Looks like a Gala apple that is my grocery store choice...only a lot prettier.

Yay for apple season! I wonder if we get that variety here...

Wow, what a colour on those apples! September Wonder indeed.

I can have a garden full of birds, deer and rabbits, but I guarantee as soon as I get the camera out to take a photo, however quiet I am, the garden clears in seconds. Very frustrating!
