Have you ever heard Anyone say they don’t like fall? Me neither.
Recently my friend Susan invited me over to pick some of her gorgeous hydrangeas. Hers must be a different variety than mine. They are enormous and as you can see ~~ simply loaded with perfect flowers. She made a pumpkin topiary with real pumpkins this year too…something I say I’m going to do every year and still haven’t.
This is her tree also. It’s called a Staghorn Sumac. Have you ever seen any tree more colorful? Well, maybe, but I think you’ll agree this one spells
F A L L
It also has little dried pods that are perfect for throwing into a bowl of potpourri.
My daughter Angie and I took our three little boys to a local farm the other day.
Right away it was obvious to me there are other things than pumpkins that catch the eye of boys.
We have wagons and
Kitty Cats that will let you hold them. (My cat Maggie is petrified of my little buddies.)
Max even found a little car with a scarecrow to climb in to. Didn’t think he was going to fit, but he found a way to crowd in.
“Aahhh, this one is heavy, but I think I can do it.” Look at the determination on his little dirty face!
I came home with one of these Cinderella pumpkins. I always see these in Martha’s magazine but had never found one until now.
We had a great day on the Pumpkin farm and plan to go to a much larger one later in the month.
About the only thing I haven’t done this fall is apple picking!
What are you doing to enjoy this fall?
