I’m back from the fabulous writers’ conference but I haven’t quite digested it all yet, and haven’t quite adjusted to everyday life again, so since it’s Halloween today, I figured it’s high time to share my pumpkin photos, or it will be too late. On our way to Starved Rock two weeks ago, we stopped at Dollinger’s Farm, and walking up to the farm you have this view (above), promising a great choice in pumpkins.

I get all excited at sights like this – which one, or which ones, shall we pick?
Another choice to make: Which bushel of Indian Corn?

Why does one even have to choose?

An accidental line-up of part of our crop – I just love how the colors jive!

My daughter’s and son’s handiwork.
