Sunflowers and Pumpkins

We went for a very autumny walk last weekend, and saw so many lovely things to photograph.  I took lots and lots and lots of snaps!  My favourites, though, are the ones I took of two of the fields we walked through.  They made me appreciate the arrival of autumn.  And I thought I'd share some autumny love with you.

The first field we came to was a field of pick-your-own flowers.  We have a few of these around here, and I think it's a lovely idea.  You just pick what you fancy and pop a few coins in an honesty box.  There were a few different kinds of flowers to be picked, but the sunflowers stole the show.....





Over the road and down the lane, we arrived at a pumpkin patch.  I've seen a few pumpkins growing  together before (in gardens and vegetable patches), but I'd never seen a whole field of them before - all shapes, sizes and colours.....






And, lastly, a little butterfly.....


I hope you're all enjoying the onset of autumn.  There's lots of prettiness to be found - you just have to look a bit harder to find it than you do in spring or summer!

  2. Hello lovely Carly!

    I cannot believe those splendid sunflowers are still in bloom! Our sunflower fields are full of dreary dried up flowers hanging their heads in shame. You can never have too many pumpkin pictures, Carly. Yours are truly lovely.

    I hope you have a sweet weekend.

    I simply adore sunflowers. They remind me of the Alentejo, a southern region in Portugal.

  8. Love the idea of pick your own flowers. I have seen pick your own berries, but never flowers.
    Sunflowers are great, I can understand why they would be hard to go past........I hope mine put on a lovely display this season.
    Beautiful orange pumpkins too.......bright, cheery pics Carly......
