It's the Great PUMPKIN, Charlie Brown!

On our cross country trip through lower Michigan Friday to pick up an E-Bay purchase, we saw quite a lot of color. We also came by a pumpkin farm. No other way to describe it. . . acres and acres of pumpkins!

We thought we saw a lot of color on that little jaunt, but by the next day, the colors were out in full force. There had been 2 nights of frost and that really brought the reds and deep oranges that are so beautiful. If you are up here or close, now would be a good time to take a drive into Michigan or another northern state to view the spectacular panorama Mother Nature has prepared for you this autumn season. My guess is we haven't seen this much beauty in several years.

Till next time. . .

We've also seen quite a few pumpkins over the past couple of weeks. Awesome sight, seeing fields of orange! The last couple of days we've seen lots of gray skies and rain :( It's time to get south.

I agree. We start a week from Sunday. Hopefully the apartment is rented by then. Keep your fingers crossed.
