why, hello Fall!

blog posts67

I'm so happy you've made your entrance
 (though yesterday was literally 90 degrees with almost gale force winds).
I have all the confidence in the world that temps will be more Autumn like soon,
 because that's what it's like here in the northern Midwest.
Lots of change.

Last weekend I took Grace and Will to this adorable little farm.
I drive by it probably 3 times a week and had never stopped before.

It's called the Prairie Garden Farm and it sells locally grown flowers, fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables.
And right now pumpkins and Indian corn.
The property has beautiful barns and farm buildings.
2 large barns are painted blue with vibrant orange - red wooden doors.
A lovely opportunity for pictures and enjoying time together.

My kids were quite taken with a friendly mama cat and her almost grown up kitties.

And why did I take them and Dan didn't go along?
He's been in Sydney, Australia for business for 8 days, and will be returning home tonight.
We've missed him terribly, but it's probably been hardest for Will.
He and his Daddy are inseparable.
Welcome home Dan!

(On the pumpkin image above I used 2 textures
(Pumpkin and Morning Light) from Chasing Dreams Fall texture set).

 And Happy Fall y'all. :)

Thank you for sharing your fun day at the pumpkin patch. I can almost feel the fall weather coming our way through your pics. ;-)

They are so beautiful... I especially love the last pumpkin photo. The bokeh is breathtaking.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with your hubby finally home.

Oh my, this looks like such a great place to go with your two cuties and your camera. All of the colored barns and fall scenery - LOVE it!! And that last pic of the pumpkin and wagon is beautiful. I love your use of texture. Stunning!! It's supposed to be 90 today, but 71 and 72 this weekend. I'll take the 70 degree weather any day. I love fall. It's my favorite time of year!

Debbie said...

Karen said...

A lovely post, and wonderful fall photos. We would have loved seeing those kitties. :)
I can't believe you had an almost 90 degree day recently. We haven't seen any of those for a while.

Happy Fall!!

What great fall photos! Your photography work is amazing!

Wanda said...

And a happy fall to you Gail. What inspiring shots you got from such a magical place. Love the last one with those great textures. (Still haven't gotten to that yet!)

Funny, how we can pass aplace so many times and not realize what lies inside. Makes me really want to keep my eyes open.

Enjoy your family time with your Dan finally back home!!

Ellie said...

What a cute little farm! I love all these photos - you captured the fun and beauty! the last one is just yum.

It is hot here too, how is it that it still feels like fall?

my heart is aching for Sydney = I hope Dan enjoyed "my city" :(
