here be dragons and squash

Last weekend I arranged my usual progressive autumnal centerpiece for the Beehive dining room table. I say "progressive" because I usually start with winter squash, colorful corn, and many candles, and then closer to Thanksgiving, I add in some decorative pumpkins, colorful leaves, glass turkeys, sweetgum balls, and some big, frowzy burr oak acorns.

The basic elements have remained constant for years.
