Welcome to the Wednesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can hang out and talk about what’s going on in our worlds.

Today I am sharing some of my photos of the Fall from here in Oregon.

I hope you enjoy the photos!

Pumpkins, flowers and squash. The stump is all that is left of a very old and tall fir tree. When somone told a friend and I that we would never get anything to grow in the stump, we sat out to prove him wrong. The stump was hollowed out with an an axe by hand. Then we lined it with landscaping fabric, filled it with soil, mulch and plants. Weeks ago I had large sunflowers growing here too. We have recieved numerous compliments and are proud of our accomplishment!

Special reminder from our Native American Brothers and Sisters:

Okiciyap Group will be asking for warm winter wear for kids in a diary to publish on Sunday.  Here is a chance to clean out a closet or shop for new or gently used winter clothing and blankets, all to help the folks served by the Okiciyap Food Pantry in Isabel, SD.  
Do what you can to help. Tweeting and liking the diary on Facebook helps too. Wado.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
