Just wanted to pop in an wish you a happy first day of Autumn... I've been excited for this day to come, and now it is here. This morning as I drove to work I was dreaming about pumpkin pie and mulling spices. You know that feeling you get in the evening when the mulling spices are on the stove, and the whole house smells of it? It's wonderful. Out at our little farm we planted pumpkins and gourds early in the summer. We have a ton of pumpkins so far - Howdens (the best for Jack-o-Lanterns) and a few Cinderellas. And the gourds! We have swan neck gourds, just like these. When I get my camera lens (I will have enough saved by next week!), I will definitely take some shots of these beauties.
Enjoy your day, do something to celebrate! Even if it is small. The changing of the seasons is a very exciting occasion.
