Is Autumn Truly Here? The pumpkins say Yes.

My neighbor's punkins, growing in their front yard. These folks have green thumbs!
The silvery grey plants in front of the punkins are guava bushes. I have one guava so far, with plans for another, and they planted maybe twenty guava bushes. Yum.

Autumn? It’s only just autumn. I prefer ‘late, late summer’, like 50 yr olds are only just middle aged.

Look on the bright side.

Your neighbors are leaning more towards farmers than gardeners! I'd love to be that good! And have the space! :)

It's pumpkin time across the country. I was thinking today that I was grateful for the people who grew the pumpkins I photographed and those who shipped them to New York. Without their assistance I'd be pumpkinless and that would be a very sad state of affairs.

Very definitely autumn here, with the nights drawing in, plenty of leaves on the ground underneath my cherry tree and a distinct chill in the air in the mornings.

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness. I can't imagine how cool it would be to look out the window and see pumpkins growing! It would get the grumpiest grump into the seasonal spirit. I love this.

The only thing about autumn that is here in s.e. FL, are 'hints' of it. It is still very hot and humid, although not as bad as it was last month and the sun is at a lower angle.

Love seeing all of those pumpkins, they are definitely a sign of autumn.

It's that orange time of the year and the only month I allow that color in my garden.

Guava? That is pretty cool. And I confess, I thought they grew on trees, not bushes. I learn new things everyday:)

Wanda said...

Oh I love this time of year. Can't wait to get home and buy some pumpkins. Pumpkin Patch, here I come....Pumpkin Pie...next on my list.

Those are beautiful pumpkins. Love to see them growing with all the green leaves.

Tete said...

Wow, wish I have neighbors like that. It seems so fun to have the palm trees in the background. Don't have them around here and they always make me smile!

Nancy said...

Wow -- pumpkin heaven! Love it. :)

What a cool idea to plant them in their front yard, that way you don't have to move them, just let them pop up where ever and enjoy it....lol

Hope you are doing well hon, haven't heard from you or been over in awhile, so thought I should check in and see how you are........
Blessings, Nellie

I need some pumpkins sitting by my back door! Enjoy your Autumn! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

LadyCat said...

Beautiful pumpkins! This is a perfect fall scene.

September Violets said...

The pumpkins all look great ... especially sitting up on the fence pillars. To me it seems out of place to have pumpkins & palm trees in the same place! Wendy

Linda said...

This is fantastic, Terra!
