Orange is in Season

the pumpkins are here......

in all shapes and sizes and as little boys and girls too;)

Our Tuesday morning bible study decided to do something as a group out side of our study.

We all decided it would be a thrill to go to the local pumpkin farm together!

A hayride was in order with this cutie and his buddy,Alex as well.  Here they are calling out "Pumpkins,look pumpkins!!"  Alex's mommy and I pointed out all the veggies along the way to the kiddos and they would respond with either a "yummy, or "ewww!"

Mentioned to Ayden that this field reminded mommy soooo much of WI:):):)

Cotton which is of course vital to my quilting passion!    We have fields and fields of cotton a 1/4 mile down the road from where I live as well.

"What kind of sound do cows make guys?"  In  a loud response we hear, "Mooooooooooooooooo!!!"

Those darn bees were busy alright,just not making honey-----rather---- buggin' us:( 

Sidenote:see that white horse behind Ayden?  That one took notice of Ayden's sandwich earlier and so we had to steer clear of him!  Persistent horse.

Our pantry was without honey so we had to get some.  It even has the honeycomb inside.  We have already added it to oatmeal and peanut butter sandwiches---delicious!   Figured we'd try some Sweet Potato Butter too while at it.  That jar needs to be cracked open soon;)

This tree was more than likely planted in January before we even got to NC and right after our house was built.  Not too big of course,but it is still a very beautiful creation from God, that sits in front of our yard, right outside my sewing room window.  Red,orange and green leaves cascade over the green grass and everything is right .  Fall is alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the season in wonderment!

Looks like a fun day! Mm...pumpkin butter sounds good. Our leaves have mostly fallen and the cold winds are blowing. Nice to see the sun on your blog today!

Yay for orange! Love those piles of pumpkins and gourds. Days like this make me love fall more and more.
