Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post – Pumpkins!

Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post – Pumpkins!  So much to do with Pumpkins this time of the year.  Use them for cooking and baking, carving and decorating,  use them in Fall Fest games, grow and compete with them… so much to do with this gourd-like squash!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

A Poem from AlphabetSoup.com…


It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can’t be seen
On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.

Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight
it’s Halloween!

~Jack Prelutsky~

Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate….

Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate

the first one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late”

the second one said, “But we don’t care”

the third one said, “I see witches in the air”

the fourth one said, “Let’s run, and run, and run”

The fifth one said, “Get ready for some fun”

Then whoosh went the wind,

and out went the lights,

and five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Fall and Landscaping



It’s Fall and there’s still lot’s of gardening to be done besides raking leaves!  LOWE’S has helpful ideas for “Digging In” during Autumn’s cool days. What a great time to garden – no bugs, no heat and no sweat!

DIY Network explains why leaves change color in the Fall – making a ride to Upstate New York a wonderful place for foliage observers.


If selling your home during the Fall season, it’s important to keep the yard neat and inviting by raking and decorating the yard with mums and pumpkins – and don’t forget to bring some of these fall items inside the home too!
