It is now October and summer is over. The leaves are changing quickly on the trees, the garden harvest is coming to an end with only the need to pick and can the sweet, red beets and the variety of apples are now available at the orchards. Pumpkins are everywhere and they make the perfect part of a tablescape. This Fall I am able to use some pumpkin plates I picked up on clearance last year. They are bright, cheery and whimsical. The pie pumpkins on the table will eventually be processed for puree to be used in pies or pumpkin bread. Yum! So I hope you will enjoy this time of year as much as I do.
