AUTUMN

 How I love this time of year!  October officially starts mid-week and autumn is finally here.  We expect a week of cooler temps in the 60's...my kind of weather.  I enjoy changing out the flower pots to reflect fall colors...yellow mums, purple cabbages, and cornstalks.  Truly there is something so joyful in setting a pumpkin (or two) at the front door!
And it's the one time of year I can display the pumpkins I have painted on canvas, one with a few warts, and one quite gnarly!!

My sons had a favorite Halloween poem when they were children:
  Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate. 
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late."
The second one said,"There are witches in the air."    
The third one said, "I don't care!"
The fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run."
The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
Woo- ooo went the wind
And out went the light
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
