I love Fall. It is one of my favourite seasons. Sweaters, warm cups of tea, beautiful leaves, Thanksgiving and Halloween. While it is also a time for Back to School and preparing for Christmas shopping, it is more about tucking nature in for a long winter’s nap. The leaves fall, the crops are harvested, and the animals prepare for hibernation/migration. Our yearly visit to a local pumpkin patch reminds me of this. The ripe orange pumpkins sitting amidst a field of dry and withered vines. A season of growth and abundance over. A season to celebrate.
The boys love the pumpkin patch. There is a corn maze, a tractor ride, pumpkins to gather, and lots of yummy treats to enjoy. This year we were delighted to find these white pumpkins.
So many creative things you could do with a white pumpkin! The boys tried to convince me that there is no way this could be a real pumpkin. They informed me that real pumpkins only came in orange.
With a few final blossoms remaining, the pumpkin patch had reached it’s peak on our visit. With so many wonderful pumpkins left to be carved, eaten and enjoyed it was a wonderful day filled with memories, photos and some gorgeous pumpkins.
