Pumpkin Shopping and Scenic Driving


On Saturday Vicki and I took a nice scenic drive to Peddler's Village. On the way we stopped at a pumpkin patch so Vicki could by a pumpkin. It rained just a bit, then it turned into a beautiful day.

I really enjoyed seeing all of the Weekend Reflections too.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

What a fun post. Your first picture really captures the spirit of Autumn, love the barn and all the fall colors.
We had lots of rain on Saturday, the sun finally showed up in time to set!

this was a delightful post. Fall is my favorite time of the year, especially going out with the kids to get their pumpkins. This looks like a very fun place to visit.

Thom said...

What a wonderful place. I love the photos as usual. The pumpkins are great.

Thom said...

You're making me homesick again!!! These are fantastic, and I especially like the lively scarecrow!! Fiddle-dee-dee.

Ai Shiang said...

Those pumpkins look very big! I always hear people talking about pumpkin this and pumpkin that. That I mean by using pumpkin for cooking and as beauty products. I myself hardly cook them 'cos they shrink too much :o)

Tom said...

Hi James
I love these shot, the first one especially... I collect pictures of Scarecrows and such... may I save the one I mention to my collection?

One of my favorite anglo-saxon celebration, that unfortunately we don't have here. I love pumpkins, but it's impossible to find them here. So I really enjoy your pictures! especially the last one, with the rainy clouds..What a mood!

Maria Berg said...

We do not have that tradition with the pumpkin and I miss it a bite so lovely colors, MB

Hilda said...

I love all the fun scarecrows!

The scarecrow image is really fun. Brings the spirit of the season. The sky over those pumpkins is really Halloween :)

Really like that first one. It oozes 'fun'.

Just happen to come across your Blog. Noticed that you are from Newton, PA. That's not far from me. We are here in Reading, PA. The Wife and I have been to Peddlers Village a number of times and always liked it. She just loves to "snoop around." Lancaster County is a great place to be during the Fall Season.

Nice to meet you.
Les

Euroangel said...

these are awesome photos esp. those huge pumpkins!

Lois said...

These are beautiful shots and really put me in the autumn mood, even though it is still hot here!

Peter said...

Your last photo with the pumpkins and the clouds is terrific!

Sylvia K said...

Fun post, gorgeous fall colors, magnificent photos of it all! The absolute best, James!

Have a great week!

Sylvia

Thérèse said...

Fantastic third shot!

Corker2 said...

Thanks for commenting in my Blog. I made a small mistake about the Peddlers Village. However, there is one down in Lancaster County. I think that it's in Intercourse.

Yes, those "racks" were rather short! My feet used to hang out the other side! Also, sleeping aboard a Destroyer that had no air-conditioning for a short time, was no fun. In Vietnam the temp used to get up to 105 deg. at sea!

Stay well.
Les

Barb said...

Hi James,
Your photos bring back memories for me since I grew up and raised my children in Lancaster County. The sky picture is wonderful!

Pam said...

Now I have to admit, I am extremely jealous... you and Vicki went to one of my favorite places... but thanks for the views, it brings back many Happy memories :)

Note to back pain.. be gone! follow a different road :)

Ebie said...

Fancy Village, even the colors and background spells Autumn. They produce extra ordinarily huge pumpkins. I used to not like the pie, and now I am loving it!

P.S. My first entry to Weekend Reflections was a huge success, and I get to meet new bloggers. Thanks for hosting, now I pay attention and I have a lot of photos to share in the coming days!

Take care of your back problem!

FA said...

Great photography! I'm sure it helps that PA is very photogenic. Yes, we do a have a similar bird shot. And the third shot, here, with the sky opening up resembles my Skywatch from last Friday. Thanks for visiting Monastery Daily Photo. I'm off to visit your other blog.

Woody said...

Great Photos James. October is my favorite time of year. Where exactly is Peddler's Village??

Pumpkins are a happy business. Can´t help but smile after seeing the first photo.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love the giant pumpkins with that beautiful cloudy sky in the background.
Glad you had a good weekend.

Grace and Bradley said...

Ah, it is pumpkin and Halloween season again in the US. Thanks for sharing.

Saretta said...

Love the pumpkins under ominous sky! Is it fall in Pennsylvania? Still summery here in southern Italy.

Irene said...

Your post really brightens up the day James. Lovely photos and love those pumpkins.

magiceye said...

love the variety of scarecrows!
and of course the lovely images so well captured!

SandyCarlson said...

I enjoyed that very much. That scarecrow in the top shop sure has character. It will be time for us to get our pumpkin, too.

Looks like you had plenty of good ones to choose from.
