Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere

Fall is my favorite time of year. And Fall just wouldn't be the same without a visit to a local farm to pick out pumpkins, let the children play and pet the farm animals, and, of course, eat funnel cakes and drink hot apple cider on a chilly day.
There are pumpkins in a wagon
And pumpkins on the ground
Tiny pumpkins sitting in rows
Pumpkins in the stands, waiting to be picked
There are pumpkins white as snow
And some gourds not quite so pretty
Pumpkins named "Cinderella" (after midnight?)
And pink pumpkins shaped like a ribbon
There are even "Turkish Turban" pumpkins 
There are pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!
We came home to bake cupcakes
and collected leaves to make leaf rubbings.
It was a perfect Fall day!

Oh, my. Beautiful pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! I grew some this year, they never got big enough to eat because of our drought. I picked them all and put them here and there on the porch and in the yard.
