White Pumpkin on Garden Bench

I was walking into the kitchen this morning to grab anotther hot cuppa
when I looked out my back door and really saw this - 
and just thought it looked so beautiful in its simplicity.

And like a blogger tends to,
grabbed my camera wanting to share with all of you
 this lovely little moment...
before the rest of all those colorful leaves fall off,
and before the garden bench gets stored
for the cold winter months just around the corner.

A local community church
has its Pumpkin Patch For Charity event
going on right now -
and they had a "buy-two-get-one-free" sale.

I bought the two big orange ones I have on our front porch
(will share soon)
and got this nice white one free! 

Don't you just LOVE free?

It really is the simple things
that often bring smiles to our faces.

This was one of my simple times,
on a grey sunless kind of day.

Thanks for indulging me.

OK, now just where exactly did I leave that cuppa.....?

As always, thanks for stopping by!




  1. Just beautiful, Michele! Thank you for grabbing the camera! ♥

  2. How pretty! Thank you for putting the cup of coffee down and grabbing that picture to share!

    1. Didn't see a place below to comment--I just wanted to say your bench and pumpkin are elegant. And I agree with Penny--thank you for taking the picture and giving inspiration.

  3. is GOOD! I love the simplicity in you photos. The green bench is about the same color I painted my vintage glider. We don't have much color here yet...hoping the leaves don't all fall of before they change!

    1. Yes, something is up with your comment box, Michele! I'm leaving one anyway by clicking on Reply under Debby's comment. : )

      Love that garden bench. I didn't buy any pumpkins for the house yet this year. I'm waiting on my son and his girlfriend, who are coming this weekend and then we are all (daughter, son-in-law and grands) going to a pumpkin patch. It will be late for me this year, but I hope to get a couple to add outside to my little patio table and a mini bench I have out there under the Japanese Maple.

  4. Pretty vignette. Glad you captured it and shared with us. Love your bench and pumpkin. Both have pretty shapes and your fall foliage on your tree is a perfect backdrop.

  5. I love free, Michele! Yet, simplicity, all the more! Just lovely! Hope you enjoyed that cuppa, when you found it :) Blessings, Cindy

  6. Simplicity is beauty, and these shots are beautiful.

  7. Oh it is as if a wee little Miss Autumn Muffet has just left her adorable perch.
    Have a lovely fall weekend.

  8. Thank you for sharing this vision from your yard Michele and I hope you found your cup of tea again.

  9. I'm so glad you captured this beautiful setting too Michele! I love it when things catch my eye and I think 'Gosh, that's beautiful' and that is just what you!
    Have a lovely, lovely weekend.
