Pumpkins Everywhere!

Every year during Fall we always go to a pumpkin farm.  Recently, we took a trip to the pumpkin farm in Wheatland, where happy faces of children and adults were all around us.
 
 
 
The scrarecrows were
greeting us in their
unique costumes.
Here is the Wizard
of Oz' Dorothy and
Scarecrow.
 
 
 
Dorothy's ruby
red slippers.
 
 
 
Pumpkin head
scarecrow.
 
 
 
I loved this wheelbarrow
filled with fall flowers.
 
 
 
The train is a must
to go on every year.
 
 
 
There's even a petting zoo.
Here's a sweet little goat.
 
 
 
Look over here, donkey.
 
 
 
The burro was a bit shy.
 
 
 
They have the most
delicious goodies;
cinnamon rolls with
cream cheese frosting.
 
 
 
A variety of pies.
 
 
 
Ahhh, my favorite,
the caramel apples.
 
 
 
The bright orange
pumpkins made
my heart sing.
 
 
 
A mouse pumpkin.
 
 
 
They even had
pink pumpkins!
 
 
 
Is this the oldest
truck you've ever
seen?
 
 
 
What a fun day
at the pumpkin farm!

Oh, I absolutely LOVE pumpkin farms, Sheri. We've been to many throughout the US, including our favorite, Vermont. We brought several home this weekend from the local market, but we plan on visiting a farm in October.
Loved this.
XOXO's,
Marcia

Sheri, I love this pumpkin farm! Haven't been in years! We went when the kids were very little. Rode the train the whole bit! They do a great job there. Maybe we need to go next weekend. Hasn't it been hot, though?!! When is it going to cool down?

I enjoyed following along on your great day out. What a lovely thing to do and those pink pumpkins look amazing too. I think I would have had a slice of the walnut pie (and a caramel apple too - we call them toffee apples and I love them!) Thank you very much for your kind and detailed comment about our special celebrations - so glad you enjoyed the post.

What a wonderful pumpkin farm. Autumn is a big thing in America.
Here, our pumpkins are all over .. Halloween is not celebrated here.
I love the scarecrows, someone worked hard there.
A fun day Sheri.
Happy 1st of October.

Sheri,

Looks like you had a great day at the pumpkin farm, I haven't been to one in years. There's one not far from here that reminds me of the one you have visited. I love to look at how they decorate the pumpkins, I've seen some pretty ghoulish ones! HAH :)

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Sheri,
How kind of you to come over and meet owl and Mother Goose and leave such thoughtful words.. I too, used to read Mother Goose stories to my children..
I usually have my art on Ebay, but will add some christmas mice to my etsy shop soon.
Wishing you a beautiful week
Penny

What a great fun day. We don't have this tradition in Italy or Turkey, I would love to experience this whole period there, my son would love it too : )

Susie Swanson said...

Looks like you had a great, fun-filled day.. I've never seen pink pumpkins before.. I love all of the photos but the wheelbarrow caught my eye.. I have an old one in my yard that used to belong to my mom.. She's gone now and I plant Wave Petunias in it every year in memory of her.. She loved flowers so much.. Thanks for the great post.. Blessings, Susie

magie said...

How fun..wish I had a pumpkin farm like that close by :) I really like the wizard of oz scarecrows..love Dorthy's pretty shoes. The villages around our area around this time of year, have scarecrow competitions..where people decorate scarecrows and put them in front of their houses (the best one wins a prize). It is quite fun to go around and see all the different ones :)
Those cinnamon rolls look pretty tasty..like the pretty pink frosting :)
Did you buy any pumpkins there.. if so pink or the orange ones? I can honestly say I haven't ever seen a pink pumpkin before :)
Have a lovely day today x

Sweet Sheri, thank you for the lovely tone of kindness with which you share your comments on my posts...it means so much!

How are the newlyweds? HOW ARE YOU? RECUPERATING??? Well, this is a great time of year to relax and rejoice over one's blessings, that is for sure. Enjoy the moonlight my friend...isn't it great that we are looking at the very same moon?

LOVE! Anita
