What If…

Today we were just grateful for everything.

It’s Pumpkin Season


A favorite stop at the MN State Fair each year is the record breaking Pumpkins.

This year was a stunning display of this celebrated Squash.

I bow to the gardeners who grew these beauties!

The Pumpkin Barn

Lucy and I made a quick stop at

The Pumpkin Barn–I mean how could I resist, two of my favorite things!

This beautiful property is located,

just a few blocks from the University of Minnesota, Mankato.

Katy & Dave Wortel–sell pumpkins, gourds & more.

We arrived just a few minutes before they closed for the evening.

Simple pumpkin displays
The deer were grazing in the pumpkin field!

The pumpkins are carefully selected and displayed on weathered pallets.

What a perfect place to pick out a pumpkin–or lots of pumpkins!
