Today I went to a Pumpkin Patch.
A drive through Sonoma, CA on to Petaluma where the pumpkins and sunflowers are located.
It was an overcast day, the sun tried to come out.
I still enjoyed driving the back roads and being outside most of all day.
Here are a few of my finds.
The sun came out briefly just as I arrived to find this truck.
The patch is much bigger than what you see in the photo.
They have pigs, sheep, cows, goats, a horse.
There is a big corn stalk maze that I got lost in one time not too many years ago.
A jumping house for children to run off their energy.
Then the big stacks of hay.
I realized I was missing my two grandsons.
They have been to this place with me, and love climbing.
However when I take photos I can't take them, besides that they were in school.
I enjoy finding pumpkins with interesting stems.
This one looks like some guy holding a mass of something.
This goat really wanted out of the gated area.
He stood up and wanted his photograph taken.
Stems, colors, seeds, textures.
Plants are amazing.
Buds of a sunflower.
I wonder if this one may be a little late.
Because most of the ones I saw where on their way out.
I was told last week would of been the best with sun and the spry flowers showing off their stuff.
Gourds are cool.
I never noticed these things until I moved up to Northern California thirty eight years ago when I realized fall has a new meaning.
This sunflower appeared to have a heart shape center.
