Pumpkins & Haybales

Every October the hill in front of the Methodist church erupts into a gigantic pumpkin patch. It happens suddenly, no one has witnessed the exact occurrence. You drive by on your way to town and as you return home, voila.... personally I believe it is the work of the "Great Pumpkin" Charlie Brown. There are all sorts of shapes and sizes.

The church sells them to the community to finance special projects, this year the proceeds are going to help with the Youth Mission Trip. As usual, I pick out several beauties to use in my Fall Hay Bale display.

Thanks to everyone who wished me well yesterday. I am feeling much better today, the drops have all but eliminated the itching. By tomorrow, I will no longer be contagious and can go back to cuddling up with my favorite little snuggle bug:)

How fun! I've never seen anything like that before. Even in the Autumn we don't ever do anything as wonderful as that here. Love your own display too, very sweet!
