Today's Flowers #62 / Cal Poly Pumpkin Patch



















Our local university, California State Polytechnic University, sponsors a giant pumpkin patch through their Agricultural Department each year at this time. It draws a huge crowd on just one weekend only. And, this was the weekend! We had a great time with our daughter, her husband and our 2 year old grandson. Their close friends also joined us with their two little daughters. There are flowering trees, rose bushes, pumpkin flowers and daisies galore! These photos show just that and the children romping among a gazillion pumpkins. The final picture is of our grandson on a tractor! He loved the pumpkins but wasn't all that impressed with the flowers...that's a boy for you!

These are some really terrific shots Carolyn!
I love the first one with the pumpkins, the shot of the bloom, the portraits of the sweet faces, and pretty much all of them. :)
The sweetest is the two little ones stepping among the pumpkins - very nicely done.
