A Trip To The Farm

One of my favorite things about fall is that it's apple season. Cortlands are my favorite . . .


The first weekend of fall, we always head to Lakeside farm. They have soooo many apples . . .


And a huge assortment of pumpkins. Squatty ones in orange and white . . .



Lumpy, bumpy ones . . .




Bushels of babies . . .



And look at those cool green ones hangin' out with the squash . . .



I swear they have more gourds than you can shake a stick at . . .




And piles of Indian Corn . . .



I love the way they display the Bittersweet . . .




The pink mums are my favorite . . .



They even have a mean old Cider Witch lurking on the bakery rooftop . . .




Not at all like this pretty little Witch I stitched up. She'll be heading to Ebay tonight . . .


Hope everyone enjoyed the first weekend of fall!

Have a great week!

Oh Madalynne-I so enjoyed all your pictures. I too love apples and pumpkins and gourds...and Fall! Thanks for sharing. Have you ever had a Macoun apple? They are a cross between the Mac & Cortland varieties and are my favs...really delicious!
As always, I love your creations! Enjoy your week!

Good Morning Madalynne, Wow I would love to visit Lakeside Farm. Looks like a neat place and what a variety. We went to one in Ohio and I loved it. No places like that close to us. The little witch is another wonderful creation of yours. Love her, she's so cute. Hope you have a great week

What a fabulous place you've been to Madalynne. My what a person could do with all those apples!

Love the pumpkins and gourds but I especially love the mums and bittersweet!

Such a perfect little witch you stitched up girl! She looks so lifelike. Great job once again!

Hugs,
AMY

Awww....what a sweet lil' witch - her dress is just amazing!! And is that a clay-sculpted face??? Hmmm....guess I'll have to check out the listing (like, yeah - I wouldn't be doing THAT anyway!!) And her wonderful familiar - love him!!

And apples, pumpkins, and gourds - oh my! You're making me fall off the wagon and step outside my 7-step program!! Yikes!! I could almost smell those apples! We have an orchard relatively near - but only a few pumpkins and gourds - not the variety you all have - and no bittersweet....Boo Hoo... My favs are Honey Crips....YUM!!

Happy, happy, Monday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I love all the different kinds of pumpkins~the bumpy & crusty they look the better I say!! lol Your witch is much sweeter than the one @ the orchard for sure!
