Licoris radiata

BEST HALLOWEEN TRADITION AT MY HOUSE? NOVEMBER 1!


Finally, finally the weather is cooler here.

And it's already getting to be late October. Pumpkins are all over.

 But Fall color is—not much.

October 22 in Plano. A month into Fall and still no color here. Nice and green though.

Licoris radiata,  or Spider Lily or Naked Lady is brilliant at this time.

Lots of folks are planning for Halloween. I'm planning for November 1.  

That's the day I cook my pumpkin for making my Thanksgiving pies and make a skillet of cornbread.

We'll enjoy the hot, buttered crusts with homemade soup for supper. And I’ll freeze the rest of the cornbread to make my Oklahoma Farmhouse Cornbread Dressing on Thanksgiving morning.

I may make a pumpkin pie to use up the last of the frozen pumpkin in my freezer, if I have any.

Check my next post on Thursday for my recipe for Oklahoma Farmhouse Cornbread first posted in 2016.

CAUTION: One year when I was on a diet and weighing every morning, I showed a gain of 2 pounds on Nov. 2.  So glad Nov. 1 comes only once a year!
