We went to TWO pumpkin patches on Sunday ….

and we came home VERY happy! (part of that was because we got BBQ brisket with all the fixins to go!) And because I LOVE apples and we spent most of the time at the Apple Orchard!

I am joining everyone at the Dear Little Red House for Mosaic Monday!

There’s something about the colors of Autumn….

That looks like such a great road trip. Fall is really in the air but the 85 degree temps yesterday was a surprise. Have a great day.

Becca said...

What a beautiful and fun pumpkin patch! Now that's how it's supposed to be, not some dirt lot on a busy street corner all fenced in. I just can't get excited about that. Thanks for sharing your photos...love it.

Marie said...

That's something we don't have over here, at least not that I've seen! We have to make do with a few sad and expensive looking examples at the grocery store!

Pondside said...

What happy mosaics those are! How many pumpkins did you choose?
I'd be going to as many pumpkin patches as I could if I thought that there'd be barbecued brisket!

Diane said...

What a very excellent day!

GrandmaK said...

JEANNE said...

Hi Diane, two pumpkin patches in one day is awesome. I love the pumpkins and the apples too. Your photos are just terrific. I feel like I was there. We had an apple orchard on our dairy farm when I was a kid. I love everything to this day.
I am looking forward to meeting you at Penny's on Saturday.
Hugs, Jeanne
