I stopped here Sunday morning to look for pumpkin stems. Clark Farms is a pleasant walk –and on the other side of the highway–from my house, but on Sunday I drove over. The joint was jumpin’! There must have been at least 80 cars in the parking lot at 10:30. People were lined up at the little sales hut to buy tickets for the maze and the hayride.
I wished I was seven years old again.
There’s something so cheerful about fall colors. I was married in late September and my wedding colors were gold and brown and rust. It has always been my favorite time of year.
After the blues and yellows and pinks of summer, the vibrant golds and oranges are a welcome change.
It was fun to see so many families ready to enjoy themselves on a gorgeous Sunday. So much fun to take a walk, enjoy the sunshine and pick out a pumpkin!
In the horror and insanity of what is going on in the world, it’s so nice to know that some traditions haven’t changed.
Wishing you a beautiful day…
