Let’s not forget the the “tricks” remember no eggs, soap, rotten fruit thrown around. What type of “tricks” = games you can play?
I always looked forward to the great stuff in my era.
- thick slice of bologna from the butcher on the way home.
Wow! That was an eon or so ago.
October is apple picking time. I love caramel covered apples with nuts. Delicious! Some like actual cinnamon candy on the apple. With the hard candy
I might break a tooth. At least with the caramel you can stick your tooth back in with it.
OM Gosh! That was a terrible thought.

Are you enjoying the beginning of fall? Today I am so far sun is out, weather warm with some humidity. Later today it will not be too pleasant as more thunderstorms come in. Grant you I believe we do need the rain but not in such downpours.
Today I found a very interesting plant –
This curious plant is call Kangaroo Paw – red. How did it get that name? The flower looks like a Kangaroo Paw.
Types of Kangaroo Paws Plant
There is a new Christmas season plant on the market and its name is the Red and Green kangaroo paws (Anigozanthos manglesii), otherwise marketed as Kanga. Known as the floral emblem of Western Australia, this plant is referred to as reindeer paws in the United States and has unique red and green flower coloration. The cultivar Anigozanthos ‘Bush Emerald’ has similar colored flowers and is generally easier to grow.
Other kangaroo paws worthy of cosseting are:
- ‘Bush Ranger’ – a drought tolerant cultivar with orange flowers, which can also tolerate mild frosts.
- ‘Dwarf Delight’ – a long living, frost hardy variety Anigozanthos flavidus or
- ‘Tall Kangaroo Paw’ – a type that adapts to many types of soil conditions and climates, although still delicate in heavy frost
- ‘Pink Joey’ – a variety with salmon pink flower spires
- ‘Black Kangaroo Paw’ (Macropidia fuliginosa) – which should be grown in well-draining soil in full sun and is particularly susceptible to frosty climes. It has black hairs through which its green can be seen.
