Happy Fall Ya'll

Fall, one of my favorite seasons. I guess it is so much fun when the weather starts changing and we get a nip in the air.  We can start the woodstove, cozy on the inside. Mmmmm... Yep. Fall.
Here in Maine it means Mums and pumpkins.  Oh, and cornstalks. You have to have cornstalks.
Lucy was admiring my loot that I picked up at a local farmstand. Those mums are full of blooms still tightly covered just waiting to open.
 
My little wagon sure does come in handy. I have even found a way to hook it to the mower and pull it around the yard to pick up limbs and such. Okay, crazy lady on mower pulling a wagon. All I need is a few cats to make this picture. Oh, I have cats. Remove that image from your mind please.
Last fall I had added some potting soil under the sign for just this instance. The weeds made themselves a home.
After a bit of weeding the mums have found a home. Out with the weeds!

Ted was busy trying out a paint sprayer.  Part of the fence is painted. Needless to say, we will be going back to the paint by brush and roller method. But the pumpkins look lonely.

Red mums around the flagpole. Very patriotic mums!
I know what is missing. Cornstalks.  Hmmm...these are really green but will soon turn nice and brown.
Now that looks better. I will get more cornstalks and add later. The pumpkins don't look near as lonely as before.

Much better.  The fall flag really adds some color.

Even the farm sign looks better with cornstalks.

Just getting into the season. 
Happy Fall!
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm

Love that wagon; does it dump?
Seriously...I have a green wagon that has a handle on the front and it lifts so the bed dumps. Ever so handy but if your wagon dumps then I'll probably get one like yours. It looks a bit larger and sturdier.

Happy fall back atcha! We used to haul our wagon like yours with our Wheel Horse garden tractors. It's a bit small for Fergie, though! K is plotting to get me a 4 wheeler, now that my knees are complaining more and more and it will be 2 yrs till I can have them "done." He wants to convert it to electric and charge with solar. THAT will be great! Hauling that cart is not too bad, but we have a short somewhat steep place between garden and loading/unloading area unless I go WAY down the drive, and the uphill pull is hard. Downhill, well it has not run over me... yet! LOL
