Every year we like to take a 40 minute country drive to the famous pumpkin patch at  Bates Nut Farm. This year we brought along our 2 year old granddaughter. I'm not so sure she was all that thrilled. Perhaps it was too much wide open spaces or just the sheer wonder of a pumpkin!

We bought our little one a pony for her birthday and she was thrilled but when she went on a real pony ride, well it was a disaster but still kind of funny. Oh well, we'll try it again next time.

Back in town, the library and farmer's market had a few scarecrows on display. You can see some more of them at sky-reflection-scarecrow-walk

  6. Very nice photos - it is amazing what can be done with pumpkins in photography - with their lovely rounded shapes and their abundance. Best of all i like the photo of your grand daughter with them - she is dressed in the perfect colour for the picture too! ( i have a grandson who is 2 1/2 )Thank you for being part of Beautiful! Love the layers and the light and the mystery evoked. And of course... love the strong colour. Thank you so much for taking part in Mandarin Orange Monday:)
