Pumpkins at Dewaynes

Before I left work Thursday, I ran out to one of the most wonderful nurseries near my school -- DeWayne's Home and Garden Showplace. This nursery, complete with a gift shop to die for, and entire Christmas showroom, and displays to dazzle the eyes, is a huge supporter of the Arboretum as well. I was hunting for some ceramic containers for our November container gardening workshop I am doing. I thought to bring my camera in the event I came across several that I couldn't decide between.

When I arrived, this huge pumpkin display caught my eye -- oh my gosh -- FALL! So I snapped a few photos to use as reference later.

I just love the colors of fall -- those oranges, browns and reds and golds! The fruits, vegetables, grasses and foods!!!

BTW, I found a great container for my class -- !

Also -- One of my Landscape Gardening studens also works here -- she won a trip to Holland earlier this year with the display she created! I wonder if this was one of hers? In any event ... It was just magnificent!

Isn't autumn wonderful with all those gorgeous colors as opposed to spring with all those gorgeous colors.

What is it about fall that speaks to us so strongly? It gorgeous Lin -- your representation of it -- and it makes me "see" it in person. Great job.

We don't do the whole harvest/fall decorating thing here, so this is a real treat to see this. :o)
