Pumpkin Picking 2017

Good Morning all my pumpkin loving friends!
 Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year! Pumpkin Picking Day! Woo Hoo!
 We go to a farm where we get a carload of pumpkins .. This year I only found one pink pumpkin but there were quite a few blue and white pumpkins..There weren't as many pumpkins this year I think because of  the bad flooding we had early in the summer ...and it hasn't rained here for I can't even tell you how long! Our grass is dry and brown! The temperatures have been in the high 8o's and 90's ..such unusual weather for us...yesterday it finally cooled down to the 70's!

I line the flower beds with the pumpkins .. this year the picking day was about 10 days later then usual!



 a lot of these will be carved for Halloween..
 Isn't Fall just the best !
 on the porch..
 see all the brown patches in the yard.. we don't water the grass, just the flowers and plants.. hoping we get rain soon..It was nice yesterday though that the pumpkin fields were dry
 Mums and pumpkins... Look at all those mum buds..



and of course Ronnie.. we don't take her with but she had to come out and make sure we did a good job! And I almost forgot to tell you that 105 pumpkins came home from the patch with us ..plus a few gourds!

 If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Gorgeous. I love seeing your flowers on Instagram and your blog and what a nice display of pumpkins. Your porch is so beautiful. I have that Tonka truck and Ronnie is so adorable. Happy Fall...

Pumpkins, mums, beautiful flower beds and of course Ronnie:). With all that wonderful Autumnal goodness, hope you get the Fall rain you need.

WOW!! That's a lot of pumpkins!! I love how you have them lined up around your flower beds...so festive....I'm afraid the squirrels would strip mine to shreds! The mums are gorgeous.... So glad the temps are now in the norm for September. Have a great weekend!

You've not had the rain because it's been here in N.Z. Well and truly over it. An amazing number and range of colours of pumpkins,they look really cool.

Wow! The blues ones you got are so beautiful... so different! And the pink one... never seen one myself, but love it! I have been reading and watching you, but when it is on the tv or tablet, I am not able to do commenting. (gotta figure those things out one of these days!)Suffice to say, another great post! Thanks for sharing with us. Hugs!

Hello Priscilla - I watch your Flosstube videos, which are great. You and Chelsea are such naturals! I’ve been participating in the Lantern Lane SAL, but can’t post on Instagram. For some reason my account keeps getting hacked from another country so I closed it. I’ll post my pictures on the LHN and CCN Facebook page. It’s coming along, and I’m enjoying it, as I do all LHN patterns.
Your pumpkins are beautiful! You have such a flair for decorating. I admit to being envious! Thanks for sharing your ideas and creativity with us. Colleen
