It’s Beginning to Look Like Fall

But Just barely!

My little pumpkin was thrilled to finally be able to harvest his “baby plumpkins”. He carried them around all day: September2010 165

We are acquiring quite a collection of pumpkins on our porch. The porch is shady and protected from the elements, so I use it to store our pumpkins as they are harvested (except for my baking pumpkins which go directly to the kitchen!). The pumpkins add some fall color which we are definitely lacking! October2010 123 We have had a warm, wet autumn. That, combined with lots of evergreens on our property, means we are enjoying a very green fall. Here is the only tree that is acknowledging the season: October2010 122

Are the colors changing in your gardens yet?

To view more gardens, visit Bloomin’ Tuesday at MsGreen“thumb”Jean and Tuesday Garden Party at An Oregon Cottage.

I'm in Beaverton, OR, and have a tree in my side yard that looks like it's on fire with all the bright red & orange leaves! About a quarter of the leaves have fallen so far...

I love to use pumpkins for fall decor! Great grouping on your porch. We only got 1 pumpkin for my Granddaughter to pick. Jean

Your porch looks so festive! I grow pumpkins only to decorate with- I don't like pumpkin flavor. :-)

Thanks for sharing with the Garden Party. For fall and winter, you can link up seasonal recipes, garden themed gifts, decorating and such. I'm going to have a list of Winter link-up themes tomorrow at the Tuesday Garden Party, so check in and plan your posts!
