White Pumpkin

Fall is coming,
I feel it.
The change of leaves,
the cooler weather,
and the pumpkin drinks
and goodies
tell me that Fall
is on its way.
This is my first Fall décor.
I thought it would
look nice on my table.
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
with Summer's best of weather
And Autumn's best of cheer.
~Helen Hunt Jackson
Are you looking forward
for Fall to arrive,
as I am?

Fall is definitely here in Wisconsin. I used to love it, it was my favorite season: crisp, cool, bright blue skies, color in the leaves, etc. But these days I'm afraid it just says, 'winter is coming way too soon.' :-((

It's surprisingly warm and sunny for this time of the year here in the UK. A treat as our winters are long. When it arrives, I enjoy all the autumn colours but for now, I still don't want summer to end! Your table decoration is ideal for the new season.

Simply beautiful, my friend! Yes, I am very excited for Autumn and am counting down the days until it officially arrives :)

Love your tribute to Fall, Sheri. I am having such a hard time letting go of Summer this year. It seems like we didn't get much of a summer this year. I am hanging on even though Fall is my favorite season of all. Great pictures- xo Diana

It feels as if autumn has already arrived here. The wind and falling leaves surrounded me as I walked through the park this morning. I love this time of year!

If only the weather here would cool down...
Wishing you a beautiful week.

I love your white pumpkin Sheri Fall is definitely not here yet in southern Italy, but I hope to see the signs of fall when I come home in a couple of weeks. Enjoy the beginning of fall and have a pumpkin drink for me.:)

White pumpkins are my favorite. Aren't they called Cinderella pumpkins?

Beautiful porcelain pumpkin! I too am all ready for Fall, but it is still in the 90's here, boo:( and I have been spoiled with the cool and delightfully refreshing weather in Colorado!
Keeping my fingers crossed for a cold front!

Each season has its own beauty and I like them all very much. In autumn I like the colour of the leaves, I like the fruits like apples, plums and raisins and I often cook pumpkin soup - so delicious! Your pumpkin for decoration is very pretty, just today in the shop I stood in front of one deco pumpkin but didn't buy it because I thought it would be too early. Perhaps I change my mind tomorrow :).
Have a nice week,

It's me said...

Hello dear and great friend!!!! Today will be the first cool day. It's been perfect here, around 76, sunny and no storms. However, it all changes today then MAYBE I'll start thinking fall! And white pumpkins? My favorites.

I am terribly late, trying to keep up with school, poetry and blogging!

What a lovely pumpkin. It's perfect for the season. I love it and your blog. It always lifts my spirits and makes me smile. Thank you for adding me to your 'lovely' list. That was very sweet.

Sheri, how nice to see the season change to autumn in your part of the world! We are at the start of spring here in New Zealand, and the sunny days are just so good.

I will be sure to follow your autumnal activites and thoughts! That's a cool pumpkin by the way.

Kristie said...

Hi Sherri,

Yes, I am looking forward to some much cooler weather here. Although, it won't get much cooler until late October and then even not as cool as I was accustomed to when we lived up around Chicago.

It has been an extremely hot summer, much hotter than last year. I've hardly gone outside this month or last month for that matter. LOL It's just to h~o~t.

Palomasea said...

I do love all of seasons, Sheri, but that little window of change...from one season to especially exciting.
Have you had your first pumpkin spice latte of the season yet? ;) Now they just advertise it as "PSL"'s so funny. A household name by now!
Your creamy pumpkin is lovely....
Hugs and wishes for a beautiful weekend,
