Each year when the leaves start to turn color, we have made it a family tradition to visit a pumpkin patch/farm or a corn maze, it’s a kind of Fall pilgrimage to be surrounded by the beauty of nature, the sweet aroma of apple cider and doughnuts coloring our eyes with the rich rusty colors of Fall pumpkins, the hardy mums and the rustle of the colored leaves amidst the high winds. Hay rides and pumpkin cannons, along with corn mazes become a part of the amusement when the kids are around……Oh, how I wait each year for this beautiful season!
Wake up to the pumpkin season, it’s here already……
Endless rows of pumpkins lined up …big and small, long and round….you get to choose which one you want to take home….
Would you rather take a pumpkin to make a pie or would you take a decorative one to carve and place it as your official doorstop for the season and usher in the harvest blessings , the choice is yours to pick….
…..or maybe some gourds ?
……or would you rather look at the colorful hardy mums, instead ?
…..certainly, you get to choose !
Wait a minute, you did not forget the hay scarecrows did you ? Some of them ae so cute than scary 🙂
Don’t you forget the apple cider and the doughnuts…it’s officially Fall!
….or how about some honey, dear ? Our Farmer’s have worked so hard all year, to give us a bountiful crop for the harvest and honey to sweeten our days, you must take some honey, or perhaps pickles or homemade marmalade……let the spirit of the holiday season begin….
