Fall Delights ~~


Fall Delights ~~
Woke up this morning there was a chill in the air
Brrrr how neat it was to say...
"Gee I'm a little chilly think I'll put on a Hoodie".
The sun was shining brightly but you could
feel & smell Fall in the air.
Hubby and I headed out to
Salinger's Orchard & Farm Market
just over the line in South Salem, NY.

They had Apples, Cider, Corn Stalks,
Warm Cinnamon Donuts,
Hot Coffee & Mums
Really delights for all the senses.

Almost everything to make a Fall Lovers
Heart skip a Beat.
Only thing missing was a Variety of PumPkins.
Not a ONE to be had.
Funny thing ..... people get a little testy when you ask for
PumPkins this Early in the Season.
I tell them what I have said for the last fifteen years..
"Hey I'm in retail"
we are always a bit ahead of the Season. lol

No one locally says anything to me anymore,
I think I have the reputation as the
"Crazy PumPkin Lady" in the Tri-State area. lol
I'm very fortunate to have brought home a trunk (SUV)
load of Special Pumpkins from my recent trip to PA.
(Thank You Betty)
I'm a Happy Camper, and I can now patiently wait till our
native grown PumPkins are harvested here in CT, and
readily available at every fruit & market stand.

Hope you are having a wonderful, safe & relaxing
Labor Day Week-End !!
Sending Warm Hugs from the Cabin ~~ Connie xox

Hi Connie,
We've got a nice cool day here today, it's raining but that's OK we need it and I love the cool. I found one pumpkin at the farmers's market here yesterday. I was suprized and delighted. We don't get them here early. Yours are beautiful. I really enjoy your blog.

No Pumpkins here either! One year I put them out in late Sept. it got really warm and they rotted! Then I have the squirrels that love to munch on them! I get small ones for inside and wait for the larger one for outside now. Love you photos!

Dear Crazy Pumpkin Lady, Here I sit with cornstalks, mums and NO pumpkins...well...lots of make believe pumpkins - Tony traveled high and low but to no avail. Will just have to have open house without them - (sad face) - maybe no one will notice. Autumy Blessings for a busy week - XO, Judy

LOL Judy...as much as I love you, and you know I do...we would have seen two crazy old ladies in the parking lot....fighting over the pumpkins...just the thought makes me laugh out loud. Can ya just see the guys across the street selling tickets to that match. :-) xox
