When I went to sleep Saturday night the wind was howling outside my window, and when I woke up on Sunday many of the trees that were green on Saturday were now bright red.
The temperature had dropped to 33 and there was frost on the pumpkins. It felt really cold after the recent hot weather, and I was forced to give in and turn on the heat.
I love all of the varieties of pumpkins that were at the farmer's market. Some are meant for stacking, while others are perfect for carving, and then there are those that are just interesting to look at.
I don't have anywhere to display all of these pumpkins anymore, but I loved wandering around looking at them.
There were lots of interesting gourds and Indian corn too.
Wouldn't they look fabulous on a Thanksgiving table?
I'm not sure I have ever seen such a quick turnaround in seasons. It was like we went straight from summer to winter, but
now that it is finally fall I am going to get out and enjoy the changing season as much as possible.
I'm looking forward to the sound of leaves crunching under my feet.
