Minis at the pumpkin patch
On a recent trip there was no doubt that fall had arrived. We were a little early for widespread leaf color, but even so fall color was present in pumpkins.
Our Georgia clan supplied an extravagant dose of pumpkin fun when they included Husband Walter and me in their excursion to a pumpkin patch at a nearby church.

Those bright memories of the grands’ pumpkin shopping were just the beginning. Pumpkin decorating efforts were evident in every community we visited.
I had never before realized that bright orange pumpkins used in a variety of sizes, numbers and creative ways could trigger such a release of my brain’s happy chemicals and with no bad side effects. Woohoo!
