Trending for perhaps ten years now, these ornamental cabbages have become as much a New England fall tradition as "hairdo" mums, pots of tiny peppers, pumpkins and gourds.
"Planted" in hay and straw, these pumpkins and crysanthemums bring some color to a downtown sidewalk.
This variety is much frillier than the others in this post.
This brass bell is more than one hundred years old, and sits in a prominent window of the downtown volunteer fire department.
Looking almost rose-like, this cabbage is sittin' pretty!

This clump of swamp roots and moss combine to make a perfect little home for the gnomes and fairies of Pink Gardens' yard. This must be the entrance to their fabulous miniature world!
One of my "holiday" cactuses, this bright pure pink variety, is blooming this week. While it's technically a Christmas cactus, this plant bloomed for Thanksgiving. My actual Thanksgiving cactus doesn't have a single bud on it yet, lol. My three other cactuses, which range from salmon to fuschia to red, lack buds, too. I guess there's no rushing Mother Nature!
