mums and pumpkins

Nothing screams October more than pumpkins and I right?  Went to a nearby local landmark, home of the "best" doughnuts and the "very best" fresh apple cider in all the land (per the opinion of many I've met!)  Not to disapoint...we gobbled up warm doughnuts and bought loads of cider (it's already gone, and it's only been 2 days...unreal goodness was inside that jug.) 

We proceeded to walk up and down the dozens and dozens of rows of pretty pumpkins...all the different varieties of pumpkins were indicated with little signs...I didn't even know that there was such a thing as a blue pumpkin...did you?

I love autumn.
me and mom and mums

see those bright reddish/orange pumpkins in the second row?  those are called Cinderella pumpkins!  Cute right?

freaking BLUE PUMPKINS!?!  For reals!

more mums!!!


  1. There are white pumpkins too.

    I went crazy when I first moved here and we passed an apple orchard. It's wasn't the apples that made me crazy, it was the gigantic pumpkins they'd grown - so big they needed a wheel barrow to move them!

    I started shrieking and we had to stop the car and go look at em.

  2. Lori - you and I might just be the same person.
