Weekly Photo Challenge: Fall

This weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Fall

The first signs that Fall has arrived in Southeast Texas are not the cooler temperatures or the leaves falling from the trees.  Our first sign that Fall has arrived are the enormous bins of pumpkins that appear overnight at the local grocer or produce stand.

These particular pumpkins are referred to as Cinderella Pumpkins.  They come in a variety of colors; the orange and green shown here, light blue and green as well as striped.  Pumpkins with this shape are also known as heirloom pumpkins and are wonderful addition to a fall harvest display(shameless foreshadowing).

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion” Henry David Thoreau

  1. Pumpkin soup or pie anyone? hehe 🙂

  2. I like this!
    I am holding off on my fall photo. There is a tree that is magnificent in the fall and I have been waiting a whole year to photograph it.

  3. I wonder if these pumpkins came from Michigan? This year we’re shipping our pumpkin crop far and wide to make up for the shortages in other places caused by Hurricaine Irene and other bad weather.

  4. This reminds me of the pumpkin festival in Half Moon Bay. So beautiful. The orange colors always brings a mix of fun, happiness, of sweet dreams ahead. Thanks.

  6. Thoreau had the right idea:

  12. I love the pumpkins with the green coloring, and I have to wonder if there might be a glass slipper inside one of the Cinderella Pumpkins 🙂

  15. I agree – pumpkins are a great sign of Fall. The Cinderella pumpkins are one of my favorites because they have such a pretty shape.

    If it weren’t for the pumpkins and Halloween, I would probably miss Fall here 🙂
