October

What does October remind you of? Pumpkins and marigolds
Golden trees and falling leaves
"O hushed October morning mild, Begin the hours of this day slow. Make the day seem to us less brief. Hearts not averse to being beguiled, Beguile us in the way you know. Release one leaf at break of day; At noon release another leaf; One from our trees, one far away." Robert Frost
Discovering there are other types of pumpkins Orange you glad
Crawling vines turning red and gold
Corn with black ears 
Pumpkin pie. But can you make pies from these pumpkins with warts?
Pleasant walks with a warm sweater Cool, crisp air Steaming and sweet apple cider
Ghouls and trolls Trick or treat Candy Pumpkin wishes and Halloween dreams.
What are your October feels?

Halloween 2016

The one bright spot today was the Pumpkin Patch of Uesugi Farms in San Martin near Gilroy, California. The marigolds were so blinding that despite rain clouds, I needed sunglasses. This is the first year in business for this particular pumpkin patch and the little ones were having the time of their lives with the choo choo train and tractor rides through corn mazes.
