The spell of the pumpkin

Saturday, November 7, 2009

I think fall is absolutely beautiful. The leaves all turn orangy-yellow-brown, the crisp cool air, harvest of farming fields and gardens.

I was talking to my friend Michele last week about how the smell of pumpkins brings me back my childhood memories of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all those wonderful things that fall into fall. For me, you can't have fall without pumpkins or maybe it's you can't have pumpkin without fall. Whatever it is, thank goodness for pumpkin pies!! Ha ha!
