My first Seasonal Sunday post

    Fall here along the lake shore came in with rain and gusting winds .. Now is the time I need to put my flowers away for winter and the lawn furniture. Since I live alone I will need the grandsons to come and help their grandma.   It requires some heavy lifting and I can't do that anymore.  My friend Sandy came by and we took a ride through the country side.. Lots of beautiful foliage now.
 Here are a few pictures we snapped along the way.

                                             A field of pumpkins

                                                A scenic roadway

                      We stopped at a place that had a gift shop and produce for sale. They       even had a corn maze and a small petting zoo for the little ones


                We both fell in love with this old painted bench they had

                               A house made of pumpkins..the shot was a bit fuzzy

                                          A stop by the petting zoo

                         A drive toward the lake  was our next adventure


.. the wind had picked up and it looked
like it wanted to rain so it was time to start back home and have something warm to
drink . A hot cup of cocoa for me and Sandy had a cup of warm cider that she had purchsaed at the produce stop

This is my first post on Seasonal Sunday

  2. Looks like you had a nice drive in the countryside with your friend. Love the field of pumpkins and the apples. When we lived in New Mexico we went apple picking every year ... picnic and apple cider. Thanks for the memories and welcome to Seasonal Sunday!
