The Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch


I am a little disappointed that It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will not be airing this year on network TV but because I have the DVD, I guess it's really no big deal. Like Linus in the classic Peanuts Halloween special, I am always on the lookout for the perfect or "most sincere pumpkin patch." This year, I found some gorgeous pumpkins at Descanso Gardens for their annual Halloween themed event. The botanical gardens at Descanso are currently filled with pumpkins as far as the eye can see and that made for a lovely day and some fun pictures! It was truly a feast for the eyes and a great way to get in the Halloween spirit. While I didn't dress up in costume, I did wear a fun striped skirt with just a hint of orange in it, which was the perfect match for my orange bag that is vaguely reminiscent of a big pumpkin!

Descanso Gardens is always a beautiful place to visit. A few years ago, we went in the spring to stroll the gardens and look at the lovely tulips and cherry blossoms. While the gardens looked different for fall, they were just as lovely, especially with all of the pumpkin themed displays. While visiting the gardens last week did make it seem more like fall, unfortunately, it was quite hot on the day that we visited the gardens. Since we had to purchase tickets in advance, I randomly picked a day, not knowing what the weather would be like. Despite the hot temperatures, it was still fun to go in celebration of Halloween. So, while Halloween might be a little bit different this year, I am so happy that we have so many fun, outdoor activities here in Los Angeles to partake in this year!
