I LOVE me some pumpkins.
And I will go to great lengths to get them, especially the Heirloom variety. The very first time I saw an Heirloom Cinderella pumpkin I was in love. Stone in love. So this time of year I really go nuts. I was walking through our local South Asheville Ingles Market with Big Daddy on a Saturday and there in the produce department was a gloriously HUGE pile of a Heirlooms. I just squealed and ran in their direction when he collared me and said, ‘keep walkin’ Missy!’ He does not get it but he understands and appreciates that I love them. On Black Friday when he’s dragging them ALL to the curb for trash day, not so much.
A couple of Saturdays ago I picked myself up a good, big cup of takeout coffee and drove over to the Western North Carolina Farmers Market and just walked the entire thing and soaked it all in.
I don’t know what these are but I love them! The green and soft orange colors are beautiful together.
Miles and miles of these ornamental cabbages.
And just because I’m a glutton for punishment, I stopped in my all time favorite garden shop on my way back home.
BB Barnes is amazing! And expensive. So I do ALOT of looking here, but not much actual buying. It’s a great place for ideas and unique, one of a kind garden items.
Boy, was I ever tempted to take these home.
Now I’ll be out for the rest of today looking for old doors!
