A Fallish Weekend - Lots of Snaps

GR&DF our little heat wave broke on Thursday evening and the temps kept falling all Friday back to the comfortable low 60's we enjoy here in the City. The weekend was very cool and overcast on Saturday and then on Sunday it was very grey and rained off and on all day!! I think we are in for a wet Winter - and boy do we need it.

Saturday Dale and I ran around to the sales, but there was very little to acquire - I only picked up some books. I will get a snap up later this week. On the way home after we stopped off for a sushi-licious lunch I stopped off at an SF Fall institution - Clancy's Pumpkin Patch - I try to stop off there every year as it really gets you in the Fall spirit - I had my camera so I got some snaps.....

There are lots of pumpkins in lots of different sizes..


These small ones are just right for little hands to carry....

There are lots of different colours ..


There are a couple of spooky vignettes that are set up for the extra cute snap ...

for Fall decorating there is also bushels of great looking gourds!!


and even old Mr. Tom was there all puffed up and not too happy.

In a few weeks this great Patch o'pumpkins will turn magically into "Clancy's Christmas Trees" lot -

I stitched quite a bit, but on things I cannot show yet. I even got a bit of baking done, but that I will hold off on until later in the week. There will be no post tomorrow, I'll be back posting on Wednesday. Hope your weekend was wonderful and that Fall is unfolding beautifully!! Do stop by again.

Take care,
edgar

Wonderful fall pictures. I love that it is starting to feel like fall... it is my favorite season, I think.

It's great to see your fall pumpkiny pictures. Since the kids have grown, we haven't done the pumpkin thing for a while. I have to live vicariously through your pics instead!

Were you in Half Moon Bay?? I used to love their pumpkin festival. Your blog makes me miss SF and the Pennisula. If you are in Moby Dick's say hi t Nick at the bar- He is a hoot and very sweet.

Now I want to know why you and Rico didn't get up there and have your picture taken with those witches? ;o) Love the pics of the pumpkin place, I wish there were one near me.
