Sometimes I just walk into the unexpected and I feel magical moments. I got these shots the other day while at the supermarket, it was an unexpected delight. I was really surprised by the display of fall harvest in the store, I felt the season for the first time this year. Living in the desert I don’t get to experience the full richness of the fall season like I did in the Northeast, so seeing all these pumpkins on display brought fall into focus for me, I was reminded of sweaters, fire place, hot tea to warm up and chicken soup for the soul.
The smell, the colors, the start of the holiday season, the letting go of the old, of going within and pumpkin pie. The one thing I have to have is a slice of pumpkin pie with a dollop of cream on top. I look forward all year to this delicious treat. Yummy! Can’t wait.
I love the way the white pumpkins just shine here.
And these gorgeous flower pots were gracing the front of the store greeting, welcoming me announcing the season. What an amazing universe we live in. And the magic continues.
And the pumpkins are everywhere I go.
Here’s a tip about making pumpkin pie. I was watching Martha Stewart (love her) on the Create channel and she said that she doesn’t use canned anything but the one thing that is allowed and acceptable in her kitchen is canned pumpkin for pie making. It tastes just the same as if you were to prepare the pumpkin from scratch and this saves you a lot of time.
I hope you enjoyed this post and bring some of the fall magic into your life. Please feel free to share your favorite thing about this season. Share your photos if you like love to see them.
