Have you noticed how early Christmas decorations start to go up now-a-days? What about the icons of Thanksgiving, Fall and the harvest? What about pumpkins?
Pumpkins are one of my favorite foods and favorite warm fuzzy feelings of the seasons changing. I make it a point to visit a local pumpkin patch each fall season once October hits. This year I chose to visit the Denver Botanic Gardens Pumpkin Festival in Littleton, CO. My friends and I took some great photos of the scenic red barn, fields of bright orange pumpkins, and setting afternoon sun. It was beautiful.
When Thanksgiving comes around, pumpkins can decorate the table, the fireplace mantle, and of course they delight us as pumpkin pie! I’m famous for eating pumpkin pie, breakfast lunch and dinner, the weekend of Thanksgiving. That’s my weakness….pumpkin pie and a nice hot cup of fresh brewed coffee. Nothing better. And I do it all over again at Christmas time too.
Let me know how you enjoy pumpkins and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
A wonderful article that brought back memories from my days raising kids, building a life, in my years of American life. Thank you for sharing.
That’s something that we don’t have here — the pumpkin festival. I’d love to do the harvesting of pumpkins 😉
Oh, you would love it! The experience is a great one, especially with family and friends. I look forward to learning more about festivals in your part of the world. Thanks for appreciating the article!
