Pumpkin Time!

Running, running, running....that's all I've been doing.  As in "running around" - in a car.  I stopped an a local farm stand and was greeted by this stack of awesome little pumpkins with curly stems.  They made me stop, take a look around at the beautiful Autumn day, and made me slow down to appreciate the beautiful day.

    1. I love Autumn...until it turns into cold, windy Winter. Then I dream about gorgeous, warm places like Hawaii. :)

  8. Oh, those curly stems are funny. I've never seen one with a stem longer than 2" or so. Those would be such fun to decorate.

    1. They just add personality to each pumpkin! Because, we all know, pumpkins can have their own personality :)
