Perhaps silly of me to say, I know...I understand, but this is a hard week for us with Friday marking another years anniversary of losing our Angeline and this visit to our favorite farm's pumpkin patch and being out and around all of this it ...renewed my soul....just a smidge. It does not get easier - Look at that face, so full of life... But I try to still do those things we all did together as a family. ( The photo above was her last pumpkin patch visit ).
I walked beneath the bluest sky dappled with puffy, white clouds feeling the suns warmth on my face...through rows and rows of orange wonder with a fall chill in the air.
It was wonderful. It was a good day.
My purchases. I loved this pumpkin the minute I saw it in the field and for $2.50 it was a perfect choice.
At this family farm, the cost is whatever rung on the ladder it fits through and that is so reasonable. Because our area was hit with so much rain this summer, the pumpkins and other crops were rotting in the fields so supply is definitely down.
The mum is huge and was $6. When I get everything set where I want it I will post those photos.
