I love the colors and fragrances of autumn and a great place to experience them is at a pumpkin patch! This year we headed out to Spooner Farms to take it all in!
We weren't alone as lots of people took advantage of a sunny Sunday afternoon in early October to select their pumpkins.
Maybe even venture into the corn maze or get a bite to eat.
Squash and gourds were the stars of the show.
Indian corn still fascinates me. There's something magic about the variety of colors and patterns!
It seems like every year there are more colors and shapes of pumpkins and gourds.
The individual differences, even in the same variety of gourds is thrilling. I could spend all day looking at these!
Ornamental and delicious delicata squash.
Alien space ships?
This variety screams Halloween!
Love them warts and all!
Can you believe that there are only 8 more days until Halloween and the end of October? Where is the time going?
So many exotic animals on display.
Popular with quite a few visitors was the pumpkin sling shot. Notice the targets on top of the old R.V. behind the field of dreams.
People were trying very hard to hit those targets. I wonder if there were prizes for the winners?
No matter how many pumpkins left, there seemed to be an endless supply to take their places.
