Mums & Pumpkins

Fall seems to have came a little early this year. As the leaves change colors & slowly glide to the ground I know it is time for the many fall festivals in the neighboring counties to begin. This has always been my favorite time of year.

As always there are lots of beautiful mums for sale along the roadside. We seen these beauties last Saturday.

Many fine orange pumpkins lined up in rows to pick from but just not the color Sam was looking for.

Off Sam went to the stand with the white pumpkins. These had bumps all over them.

Before we left Sam found this big old pumpkin he called the Granddaddy of them all. He sure would have loved to bring this one home with him.

Sam had a time picking between two pumpkins so we just got both of them. This one he put in the kitchen.

This one he put in the dinning room. Sam & I have always thought how fun it would be to have our own pumpkin patch. I hope he always finds the joy in such simple things.
Sam is feeling better & has gone back to school. I am thankful he is better but I sure do miss his company. Sam has such a gentle spirit & is such a blessing to me. His smile can always make my day better. I hope you are all finding just the right pumpkin to add to you homestead & of course some beautiful mums also.

Blessings Til Next Time!
