In praise of pumpkins and all things fall

So we're in for a bout of Indian Summer.

· Scarecrows

· The theme of "Halloween"

· Pumpkin bread

· Hoodies

· Impromptu beach days

· Spirit of Halloween

· The crunch of leaves

· Hiking

· Parades

· Gingerbread men

· Pumpkin coffee

· Yankee candles

· Cinnamon brooms

· Smithville Village

· Pumpkin muffins

· Fire pits

· Haunted train rides

· Merlot

· Corn mazes

· Ghosts in trees

· Grilled filet

· Witches on brooms
