Frost nearly there, on the Half Moon Bay Punkins

Click on the illustration above to more fully enjoy these Half Moon Bay punkins!
We lunched with Aimee!
Pumpkin patches on the way home,
Show their fall colors

excerpted from  "When the Frost is on the Punkin" by James Whitcomb Riley  
They’s something kindo’ harty-like about the atmusfere
When the heat of summer’s over and the coolin’ fall is here—
Of course we miss the flowers, and the blossums on the trees,
And the mumble of the hummin’-birds and buzzin’ of the bees;
But the air’s so appetizin’; and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days
Is a pictur’ that no painter has the colorin’ to mock—
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.

Three cheers for the San Benito House Deli on Main Street in Half Moon Bay with it's lovely outdoor seating
 I vote for the Olive Walnut bread every time!

When the Frost is On the Punkin, James Whitcomb Riley
