Here are Will, Bill, Florence and Shane hanging out in the pumpkin patch.
When I was a child in California one of the highlights I remember was when the local destination The Nut Tree had their annual Pumpkin Patch. This included a ferris wheel and a biggest pumpkin competition, scarecrows, candy apples and giant lollies. And all the thrill of Halloween approaching! I'm feeling nostalgic for it this week - tinges of the excitement I used to feel on those lovely autumn visits. I wish I could ride on the miniature train again, and look through The Nut Tree's selection of semi precious stones for sale. And hang out on an enormous pumpkin!
