First pumpkins of the season...

Pumpkin
Yesterday, I found the first pumpkins of the season at our grocery store.

Pumpkins
They add a little Autumn color in my entryway. More to come!

Beautiful, cannot wait to get some pumpkins and mums! ;-)

Maries Cottage said...

Oh yes I meant to ask, I hadn't looked at your blog for quite some time and if I remember correctly you had put out a lovely little catalog called Seasonal Delights, do you all still have that?

I started a Goodwill Goodies Party. Come by and enjoy every Wednesday!!

Melinda said...

Pumpkins are one of my favorite fall symbols. I can't wait to pick up some this week when I grocery shop!

I love your pumpkins. Can't wait to start decorating for Fall. Can't start yet, or my husband might kill me...he doesn't like me to start too early, but I can hardly wait!

I have not yet seen any pumpkins in the markets. I have seen plenty of mums though. In fact I have my window boxes filled with them. My bedroom has two windows that face the front of the house and I can see the cheer yellow flowers when I look out.

Cute pumpkins, but I am waiting to see all of your terrific acorns! They are my fall favorite!
Blessings!

Great fall colors. I love have pumpkins and fall flowers to brighten up the porch and yard.

Carmen said...

Hooray for pumpkins!

Terri said...

I grew pumpkins this year and for the first time ever they grew and ripened. I now have 8 sugar pumpkins!

Susan B said...

Yay, pumpkins!! I'll have to look for them the next time I go to the grocery store. I can't wait for some pumpkin pie! :o)

I love pumpkins! They look great against white.

Simply Heart And Home said...

Love pumpkins! I am going to look tomorrow and see if they have any at my market. :)

The Liberty Belle said...

I'll be glad when my local markets get them in too. There's just something about Autumn that comforts me like no other season can.

Looking forward to seeing what wonderful things you have to share on your awesome blog during the Autumn months.

Anna said...

Oh fun! I might start looking for some around here. I am so excited for the cooler weather that is finally here.

Mrs. H. said...

Oh I've been watchin' for them! They haven't made it to the stores down here yet. :-)

This is my favorite season for decorating!! I can hardly wait to bring all the warm, autumn colors into my home. Did you know that carving out a pumpkin makes a cute planter for mums? I just love decorating with pumpkins!

Arlene Grimm said...

The first pumpkins here are rather ugly so I am waiting for some nicer ones. I did put all my ceramic pumpkins out yesterday.

Catherine said...

I love pumpkins, too. I'll have to look for them when I do my shopping this week! We have our fall decorations out, just need a few pumpkins and gourds to add a finishing touch!
Blessings,
Catherine

p.s. yesterday's photo was too cute, love that kitty!

I saw a little boy at Walmart yesterday proudly holding one of those Jack Be Nimble pumpkins, the little ones. He was so proud of it! Great memories for our kids and they cost next to nothing...

Judy said...

We grew some in our garden! I posted pics on my blog! They turned out to be pretty big!

We are currently living with my inlaws and their pumpkins are ripe as well ~ It's so cheerful to look outside and see the autumn colour already! :)

Mel said...

It must be in the air, I just started my fall decorating yesterday. I don't know, if my pumpkin vine is going to supply any pumpkins or not. The vine is huge, but no evidence of any fruits. I bought a few wooden pumpkins to get started.

How cute are those little baby pumkins, and they look pretty in your home.

Fun fun fun!! FALL is coming!!!!

I try growing pumkins every year and they just won't appear. We get the trailing vines and sometimes even the flowers but no fruit. I can't figure out why. Do you know why? Have a great Friday Kelli.

Hi Kelli, I'm so glad I found your blog again... had to delete all my past posts, so could not get to my archives! But now I know how to make a blogroll, finally. :) Those little pumpkins are adorable. Starting to feel like fall up here... guess we'll be setting some out soon too, on the front porch.

Lady Katherine said...

Pumpkins already! Hubby has some planted, but I think this year he planted them to late. We may have to go to the Grocery!
