Fall is in the air!  Where I live, we actually had a couple of days that were in the low 60's, upper 50's.  Of course, it warmed up quickly during the day.  Today, it is 86 and it is supposed to get even warmer this weekend.  Still, people are putting Halloween decorations out and haunted houses and pumpkin patches are sprouting up in the community.  My grandson's pre-school class will be going to a pumpkin patch at a local church next week.  I myself have my own pumpkin patch of sorts.  It's actually a watermelon patch that came up by the front of my house.  We throw watermelon rinds out for the coons that come up and some of the seeds sprouted.  This usually happens every year so when it gets close to the right time, we don't mow over them and instead, let them grow.  Of course the youngest grandkids don't know that it is a watermelon patch and not a pumpkin one :smileywink:
