The Pumpkin Patch

Last Friday was one of those perfect October days, it was bright and sunny with clear blue skies but still warm enough to spend the whole afternoon outside without the need for scarfs and jackets. When we woke up to such beautiful weather we knew we had to make the most of it and what better way to spend an October afternoon than pumpkin picking -especially with Halloween just around the corner. 

We had quite a lazy start to the day, having tea in bed with the sunshine streaming through the window. I don't know about you, but I think the light is just perfect at this time of year. It sit's so low that it gives everything it touches a beautiful warm glow. Anyway, we finished our tea, got dressed, ready and headed out the door to find pumpkins.

We turned up at Craigies Farm (mentioned before here) just after lunch time and as it was too late for lunch and too early for dinner it seemed only right to have cake, so that's what we did -with a coffee of course. Being the sweet toothed monsters that we are we couldn't settle for a single custard cream biscuit each (which were excellent!), we also had to share a slice of chocolate cake. I blame Paul entirely for this. When we'd finished and were fully fueled on caffeine and sugar we wondered down to find our pumpkins in the pile of straw -which is a lot of fun to walk on, it's kind of bouncy. We took some pictures as we went, trying to find the most perfect of pumpkins for carving. I would however like to go back and pick up some of the green and white ones for decoration, I love their quirky shapes.

I'm sure our finished carved masterpieces will make a showing up here, but for now I will leave you with some pumpkin filled snaps.

Be warned - if your sick of the sight of pumpkins you may want to click off now!
