Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny*

Pumpkins Grown by Gerry in our Garden!

" . . . every pumpkin in the field,
goes through every point of pumpkin history."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
from the essay
"Nominalist and Realist"

I like the way that this one has re-situated itself amongst the oregano!

*Theory of Recapitulation


  1. Love this idea, Kitti. Thanks for taking me out of the mundane.

  2. Have always loved seeing pumpkins in the field. Your 'close up and personal' presentation of them have given me a new appreciation for individual pumpkins in the garden! Thanks, Kitti!

  3. Thanks Sue & Burnetta! Burnetta, remember when we taught the Stephen Jay Gould essays at U of A?
