Pumpkins and Scarecrows

I am posting some pictures of how we decorated the yard for fall in years past. It is still very warm here in New Mexico, and I haven't started decorating for fall yet.  But now that Labor day has pasted, I'm going to have to! 



I took this picture a couple of years ago,  before we added on the fenced front porch.  We had quite a pumpkin patch that year in the front yard!!   I have a good friend that  raises fields and fields of pumpkins, they ship them to Walmart and other stores.  She always gives me pumpkins in the fall!

Here's Mr. Scarecrow standing guard over the  pumpkins with his pitch fork!

Pumpkins everywhere!!! 


Here is a sunflower wreath that I made for the front porch!

A wagon load of pumpkins for the front yard!


Mr. Penny collects old tricyles.



And this concludes the tour of the pumpkin patch!  I'm running idea's thru my head of how to  decorate the yard for fall this year!    I will be joining these parties
