A Pumpkin Patching we will go and a little Autumn decorating!

Hi all! 
After all the rain, flooding and gloom we had this past week, this week-end was a welcome reprieve.
With crisp, cool temps in the mid sixties and beautiful sunshine the trees are really starting to change!

And I thought Sunday afternoon would be a perfect time to take a little cruise to my favorite pumpkin patch!
It's a short cruise, only about 3 miles down the road from us.  I hope this will help get you in the Autumn spirit!

It's such a charming place with pumpkins galore! 

They grow so many different varieties!  And they have everything laid out and decorated it so perfectly!

Ahhh, gorgeous Mums everywhere we look!

It's such a spooky good time!

 I love these pumpkins!  Aren't they unique!


  I got to have gourds!

Don't you just love these turban pumpkins!

Go inside and there are wonderful autumn displays!

I just love a little frenchy!

A frenchy topiary!

How about some yummy squash for supper!

When I got home I started doing a little more fall decorating to our front porch.

My pumpkin display!  I will probably rearrange it many times.

Thanks for coming by everyone!

I am joining Susan for Met. Monday.
Marty for Tabletop Tuesday.
Thanks Ladies!


  1. What a fun Pumpkin Patch to visit and so convenient to you. I love the decor you did on your porch...Christine

  2. Glad that things are getting back to normal. We have started to have normal cool temps here in WV too. That firt photo gave me the biggest laugh. Love all of them.


  3. Cindy, that pumpkin farm is amazing!! I especially love the white pumpkins. I think this year I'm going to try to make it to The Roloff's pumpkin farm. I hear it's packed with people...so we'll see.

    Great post, but where's baby update???? Inquiring Grandma's want to know.....:)

  4. Enjoyed the trip to the pumpkin patch. I really like your Fall decorations. Now that it is starting to cool down some here, I may need to shop for a pumpkin and a pot of mums.
    Have a great week.

  5. How wonderful that you have such a great place so close to you! I love all their displays. I love your fall decorations. I cannot wait until next month when one of the farms near me has its Pumpkin Festival. I almost started decorating for fall this past weekend but I still was not ready to let go of summer. Maybe next weekend...

  6. Oh Cindy, what a fun place. I love all the different pumpkins and they have it all looking so pretty. Love the ones that you chose and your fabulous corn too. Your displays are fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  7. How great you have a place like that so close to you. I would love it. Great pictures.

  8. I love places that go all out and make it a fun while looking for that perfect pumpkin! We have one near us that they take all the school kids to and they even get to grind corn in old rocks.

    Glad the river is quieting down. I feel so badly for people who have flood damage. It really makes a mess of things. Glad the family is all ok.

  9. I am glad to see things are improving there! The pumpkin patch looks like fun! Love those warty pumpkins!
    You did a great job on your display. We have not had a change in color here, everything all green and summer annuals blooming away. I know it will happen, soon enough!

  10. It's the most wonderful time of the year! I love the colors, the smell and the cooler temperatures. I've wanted to make a topiary like that, but I know the squirrels would turn it into a buffet!

  11. Oh so many differents varieties!!! A fabulous farm!

  12. Well I am glad all is well and life is turning back to normal - for most of the people around you. We did hear of the towns that were destroyed. So sad.
    Well it's 109 here today. NO matter how many pictures of pumpkins I see - it just DOESN'T FEEL LIKE FALL YET!
    And I'm outta here tomorrow so I don't care if it's going to be hot here all week. Ahhhhh - cooler temps are just north of us! YAY!
    But your pictures are gorgeous. I don't think I've ever seen so many different varieties! COOL!
    Well, hopefully you won't become a Gramma when I'm gone, but - I am going to try and keep checking in on you. SO GOOD LUCK!
    Have a great week! Hugs! Karen

  13. What a fun place...I loved the bumpy and the turban pumpkins! I love the wreath with the Indian corn too, have always loved that! Happy Fall ;D

  14. Oh, what a wonderful place to enjoy fall and take photos! My kind of place. I love the decorations. How clever.

  15. How fun...I love all those white pumpkins.

  16. Thanks for the wonderful tour, Cindy. Your house is looking good, too.


  17. What a fun farm, such a beautiful, peaceful scene after all that scary flooding! So glad things are back to normal for you:@)

  18. Cindy, love the pumpkins, especially the white ones and the turban pumpkins. Hope you're staying "high and dry"! Linda

  19. What a fun pumpkin patch. I adore this time of year, the crispness of the air and all that goes along with fall. Your decorations are really neat.

  20. Looks like a fun place to go with the family! I love, love, love white pumpkins...big or small..I'd use them all year if it were appropriate....and they would last!

  21. What a neat place to have so close by. Those gourds are only 50 cents, wow. They are so expensive at the grocery store. I love the white and Frenchy pumpkins. The other ones look like they are covered in warts. Maybe a witch put a spell on those. Ha ha.

  22. What a great place to visit and get into the spirit of Fall. Your display is wonderful. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!


  23. Cindy, thanks so much for linking to TTT. I think your decorations are so pretty. Love them. Hugs, Marty

  24. Hi Girlfriend...

    Ohhh...I love that pumpkin patch! You know, I haven't even seen any around here...boohoo! The only pumpkins I've seen so far have been at Walmart! I love all the pumpkins that you picked out...they look awesome on your porch!!! Love all the Indian Corn too! Girlfriend, your porch looks fall fabulous!!! I just adore it!!! Ohhh my...I didn't even know there was such a thing as a french pumpkin...I must have one! wink! I love the topiary they did with them. I have always wanted to make one...and haven't yet. Well sweet friend, I think autumn looks fabulous on Applestone Cottage. Your sweet home is sooo perfect for all the autumn decorations...I love it! You did GOOD, Girlfriend! Thanks for sharing it all with us!

    Love ya,

  25. Your home is looking very festive. Loved the tour, very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing.

  26. My kinda place there Cindy. I love pumpkin farms, and patches and anything related within. They had some cool looking stuff there, the gourds are fun too!

  27. Your pumpkin patch is SO cute...even ours in Michigan aren't this nice. Everything practically sells itself!! I love what you did, especially with the corn! I am hoping to get some other good ideas while blogging!! ;-D

    Al is looking forward to the BIG GAME!! He told me to tell you to tell Dan that he bets him a beer and 3 points. He will hold him to it!



  28. Hi Cindy! What a wonderful pumpkin patch. I've never seen pumpkins like some of these! I love what you've done to your porch too. Your pretty corn on the door looks wonderful!
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia :)

  29. oh what fun...I want to take my grandson to a pumpkin patch for photos...

  30. Great pictures! What a cute place! And your decorations are lovely as well :) ♥

  31. First let me say this is my first visit to your blog and I love the red on the outside of your house. It is gorgeous! I also love what you did with the garage doors. I have not got to stop at our pumpkin patch yet but love all the ideas. Check out the new October Country Living for some more pumpkin ideas that are just different and too cute.

  32. What an adorable place! My grandkids would love this...me, too! The prices from what I can tell are also more than reasonable...much cheaper than around here. Your pumpkin display looks great. I need it for my porch when I have this upcoming bridal shower!!! Guess there is no baby yet since we haven't heard you screaming. Your package is in the mail!!!

  33. Cindy I would love to go to a pumpkin patch like this!! gosh so many varieties!!! You did a great job displaying the ones you found there!! I still haven't started decorating for fall- I am so behind in everything! I even forgot that I was supposed to be working my day in the antique store today till 10 minutes before time to open!! You talk about lighting a fire under me a getting down there in a flash!!!

    bee blessed

  34. Cindy,

    That is one of the prettiest pumpkin patches I've ever seen! Just wonderful..love the varities and colors! Thanks for sharing!!

  35. HI!!
    THIS helped a little bit,but when it is well over 100 AGAIN----I cannot stand one more HOT DAY, I am going to lose it here soon!!
    It is HOT and I mean HOT!!
    Please fall come soon
    Love your fall pics, that tree is awesome!!!
    The pumpkins are great too
    loved them all

  36. That is a fun looking place! I wish there were a place like that close to me too. I may have to look for one. They have so many neat choices, especially the turban ones. I've never seen those before. I love the first photo of the skelton in the chair w/the carved pumpkin. Too cute! Your selection and displays look wonderful!

  37. Oh what fun that was! Thanks for the tour.

    Have a wonderful Tuesday.

  38. I am SO aching to be back in Wisconsin in October!
    Your post made me long for it even more.
    I loved every single autumn image!
    Thanks for sharing!

  39. Beautiful fall pics and the pumpkins are so pretty. I've never seen those warty looking ones-I like them. You're little red bench is so cute decorated up for fall. Thanks for all the pumpkin pics!

  40. How fun! I love fall. Great photographs.

  41. It's still feeling very summery here in Florida so it's fun to look at your photos and pretend it's cooler. The fall weather will be here for us sooner or later. Maybe. Love the white pumpkins! :)

  42. What a wonderful pumpkin farm! So cute! I love what you bought and how you displayed it!

  43. Cindy, this looks like the best place to go shop for pumpkins and also for fall decorating inspiration. What cute, cute vignettes that have set up. I've never seen a turban pumpkin, and it looks so pretty on your bench. What a cute little fence with scarecrows! You're making me want to run to the pumpkin patch, but the one I go to isn't nearly as neat as this one.
    I had to laugh about you asking me to share photos of where I went this past weekend. I went to help my husband and son "decorate" their trailer at hunting camp!! While there, I did joke about taking "before" and "after" pix!
    No grandbaby yet? I know you (and especially your daugter are getting so anxious). laurie

  44. Your porch is so pretty! I loved seeing the pumpkin patch, it's adorable. I need a little shed like that to put my skeleton in :)) That put me in the mood for fall, for sure!

  45. Hi Cindy!
    What fun...Looks like fall is really happening in your neck of the woods!!

  46. Wow, I have never seen so many varieties of Pumpkin! They were displayed in such a fun creative way too. Gee I wish it was Autumn over here...

    Best wishes,

  47. Looks like you had a fun visit to the pumpkin patch and I just love that fall tree. The leaves are so pretty. Your decorations look wonderful. Great photos.

  48. What a fun place! Everything looks so beautifully displayed!

  49. Cindy,
    Thanks so much for taking me to the pumpkin patch with you...I haven't been in years!!! I'm lovin those pretty white ones!


  50. Yep, I'd best be starting my fall decorating!!! I put my last summer post on today.

    Whew... I sure wish I had a pumpkin place like this one close by. I love the white Cinderella-ish ones... And, the ones with the warts are a hoot.


  57. Thanks for the lovely tour of your pumpkin patch. It's been so warm here for September with temps in the 90's. It's been hard to get into a fall mood, but your post did the trick!

    Susan and Bentley

  58. Good Morning Cindy Sweetie...
    Oh my goodness gracious what a beautiful share this morning. I love the pumpkin patch visit. I can't remember the last time I visited a pumpkin patch. I love the whites and those pumpkins with the wart like bumps all over them? LOVE those too. There displays are tremendously gorgeous and I love their mums. The gardens look exquisite. You can tell they put SO much time and thought into their patch.

    Those squash looked great. What a supper treat? Loved the corn too.

    Your arrangements were gorgeous as always. You can take a few items and make a beautiful vignette. Thank you for sharing this morning and thank you for stopping by for tea. It was SO delightful.

    Hope you have a gorgeous day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  59. Hi Cindy! What a wonderful fall post! so many varieties of pumpkins! My favorite...the topiary! Simply gorgeous! Have a great weekend...hugs...Debbie
