let's go to the pumpkin patch..

1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins - on Grooveshark

“I'd rather sit alone on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”  -Henry David Thoreau


Visiting the pumpkin patch is one of the little trips I looked forward to every year growing up, it still makes me feel all nostalgic. The colors, textures, and scents just scream fall. Caramel apples, cider, pumpkin pie..I want all the things. We went a few days before Halloween this year, just in time for carving and roasting pumpkin seeds.

When Luke and I first started dating we were at a thrift store and he spotted a little collapsible metal basket and brought it to me sing-songing, "lets go to the pumpkin patch, pick some squash, put it in this thing." He doesn't do a whole lot of silly/adorable things so it was sweet. Except sometimes he does an uncharacteristic high pitched "kitty!" squeal when he sees an extra cute one. haha! Love him.

 I hope you're having a fun fall, wherever you are!

Love the quote about sitting on a pumpkin. Couldn't agree more! And love the dress. And love all the many, many pumpkins! Am I being overly enthusiastic here? It's just such a lovely post. And I would love to go to a pumpkin patch one year. I went to see a pumpkin collection at Kew Gardens here in London this year, and that was wonderful, but I want to go somewhere where I can pick and choose and actually take them home with me!

I don't think you'll *ever* know what
your posts mean to others. you offer
this window into americana traditions
that people stuck in (what seems like)
a forever raining britain would never
otherwise see. just perfect posts that
you can lose yourself in ... thank you

Sadly I have never been to a pumpkin patch! I know we have them here in Canada so I am not sure why I haven't gone. Looking at your photographs makes me feel like I can almost smell pumpkin spices rolling on the wind.

All my love :)
