Pumpkins...

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday's Question!


A day when I get to ask you a question about anything...

"What is your favorite thing about Fall?"

This is a HARD question to answer because there are so many 
things that I love about this season, but my favorite has to be...

Pumpkins.

I love pumpkins, so much that we planted them in our garden this spring.

Here are a few of them growing...


Here's one that broke through our "chicken wire" fence and we had to 
support or it would have broken off the vine as it grew heavier...


We planted 2 pumpkin plants and 5 pumpkins grew!


Do you see the tall one on the left?
That's the one that tried to break free, but we saved him...


And one even made it to our dinning room...


A few other photos of Fall appearing in our home.
NOT  a real pumpkin...


Our living room...


In the kitchen...


One of the BEST things about Fall is eating something
made with PUMPKIN...


Come back tomorrow for a GREAT recipe for pumpkin muffins!


Now, let ME know what is YOUR 
favorite thing about Fall!



Enjoy your day!

  1. The best thing about fall is the fall colours... I love the trees turning colours.. But I do enjoy pumpkins. Love how you decorated your house. I still have to get mine done but I usually try to get it done for Canadian Thanksgiving, so start sometime between the first day of fall and the first Monday in October.

  2. I LOVE your decorations...especially your table one.

    I love that I can wear hoodies. I love the fact I can cook and bake to my hearts content and not die of heat stroke. LOL

    Pumpkin Cranberry muffins are my favorite to make.

  3. I don't think pumpkins are my favorite thing about fall, though I like them a lot. You may have inspired me to grow some next year. I think I'm giving up on tomatoes.

  4. My favorite thing(s) about fall is the cooler weather, vibrant colors, bonfires, apple cider, soups, long sleeves,and all the yummies we get to eat. I can't wait to see that recipe tomorrow.

  6. Hi Lois,
    I would have to say pumpkins too.
    I just love the way they look and it is the only time you get to see them,
    plus I love to eat things with pumpkin.........pumpkin pie, pumpkin butter, pumpkin muffins or bars.
    It is just such a wonderful change of pace to see and eat them.
    and I have pumpkins all over too,
    mine are faux pumpkins tho!

    So cool you have some that you actually grew........how fun!!

    Hope all is well at your pumpkin hideout!! lol

    Love and Blessings, Nellie

  7. I'm going to have to name at least 3, Lois! :) Love the pumpkins! They're the first thing I pick up (we didn't grow any), spicy candles burning in my home, and all the colors of fall! I just love those things because they're so cozy and make me feel like nesting! :)

    Enjoy your day, my friend!

  9. You have a pretty home and I love your fall decor. I love pumpkins, too, but I'd have to say my favorite thing about fall is the colors. Sadly, this year I'm sure that our trees will just go straight to brown since we're in the drought area. I'm planning to get out my fall things in the next few days. It's time!
    Have a wonderful day!

  11. Hi Lois! there are too many lovely things about fall but if I must I'd pick the orange red and yellow hues along the hedges and gardens - beautiful handiwork of our wonderful God!

  12. Your pumpkins are beautiful, Lois! One thing I love about fall is the cool mornings... summer mornings are so humid and sticky. *UGH*
    And I also love burning candles this time of year~ especially pumpkin and spice scented ones!

  13. Dear Lois, I love the fall. It is such a beautiful time of year. The weather cools down and the cooking becomes easier. It is not too hot to turn the oven on.
    I love the fact that the holidays are on their way too.
    Your home and pumpkins are beautiful. It is so nice to know that you nurtured these little pumpkins and now they are in your home.
    Blessings dear friend. Catherine xoxo

  15. What is NOT to like about the Fall is the question? haha. I love it all. The cooler weather, the rich gorgeous colors, scarecrows and pumpkins, the scents and smells, football games, and EVERYTHING pumpkin to eat or drink...pie, cookies, bars, bread, lattes etc. I could go on, but you get my point. LOVE Fall!

  19. I tried to narrow it down to one favorite thing, but have decided that's not possible. I love so many things about the cozy nesting season of fall.
    You have done such a nice job of decorating your home. I am most impressed with your pumpkin growing skills.
    I tried my hand at that last year. We had one little pumpkin and before I could pick it, something chewed some holes into it. Yours are lovely!
