October 2018

I can't believe it is October already.  The rains are back, and it is time to get our knitting and stitching projects ready for cooler days.  I was out at Dan's Farm and Country Market last weekend to pick up some squash, bussel sprouts, and their wonderful root vegetables.  I couldn't resist photographing this pumpkin pair in their pumpkin patch.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
