Well, in America it doesn't have to be Halloween to be pumpkin decorating time. They were starting to spring up all over the place in New England when we visited. I didn't get many chances to photograph them, but I saw quite a lot already decorating doorsteps and some pumpkin patches too.
They were also for sale outside of the grocery stores and some other shops as well. Although I couldn't bring back any real pumpkins - and they will go on sale here before too too long - I did bring back some other ones which I will show you when I share my autumn decorating - they are plastic!!
I did get to photograph quite a few at this lovely garden centre though, as well as the beautiful chrysanthemums - which are just called mum's in the US. They are stunning and I always feel that chrysanthemums just say autumn to me.
In the coming weeks I will be decorating with pumpkins and chrysanthemums so you will be seeing some more!
Isn't this a wonderful place!
