Color Me Fall

It has been unseasonably warm, so the leaves are taking their jolly good time changing colors.  And many trees are giving up and just going green to moldy brown in one discouraged step.

So I went to the pumpkin patch near work to get a jolt of fall color.  This is not your mama’s pumpkin patch, however.  I intentionally avoided taking pictures of the jumping harness thingy, the bouncy castle and slide, the junky fair-mode carousel, and the salmonella-laden petting zoo.  Do they even have pumpkin patches with just pumpkins anymore.  Sorry, my cynicism is showing.  Love the pumpkins, though.

    The ‘pumpkin patch’ at my local grocery store wasn’t nearly so beautiful!

    • I should have taken pictures at the Whole Foods in CO when I was there. They had 2 towers on either side of the entrance–very festive. But I was busy with grandbabies at the time. 🙂

    I’m with you on the pumpkin patches going overboard on other than pumpkins, but the kiddies bring the crowd. Here in Georgia pumpkins are connected to Corn Mazes!
