I don’t know why. I ADORE the season in BC, along with the crisp, cool air, comfort foods, good excuses to pick up a fav latte, (pumpkin spice, half the flavour, topped with whip cream please) and layered, cozy clothing
to hide all those lattes.
My recent bike rides have also showcased how pretty it is out here.
Maybe it’s because my little town isn’t really close by where all the cool pumpkin and mum places are…
Or so I thought.
On a recent trip into town, I took a couple of side roads I don’t normally. And that’s when I spotted the GOLD. One farm sold pumpkins of every kind, and another sold fall chrysanthemums stuffed on top of a hay wagon… for cheap!
Every time I see pumpkins at the grocery store, I keep walking. I guess I tell myself I should go find a farm, because I drive past so many every day.
So when you come across a farm that has absolutely everything, you know you’re in for a treat!
It was like a colour card selection!
I obviously should visit pumpkin farms more often. Are these common?
So I really did stuff the back of my truck with around $20 worth, which ended up being a fair bit in my book.
Well, compared to never getting generally ANY.
But I had to leave room for one more stop…
So, I’ve already shown you a glimpse of where some pumpkins and mums were placed in THIS fall block and stacked crate post. So gorgeous! They make every picture just look better.
But… you know I’m good for more, right?
Because this post
got so camera trigger happy ended up being so huge, I’ll show you next round how I decked out the front of the house, along with an au natural tour of the shed in the middle of… one big shed. It’s messy, but it sure is pretty!
As for fall decorating this year? Chalk it up to nature… the BEST kind of fall gear of all.
Are you lucky enough to find pumpkins and mums at nearby farms? Which ones were you drawn to?
