For fifteen years, maybe longer, our friend Chris has been the organizer and convenor of an annual pumpkin carving. For the past couple of years, this has taken place at the farm she and her partner Paul live on in the hills above Bailieboro, overlooking Rice Lake. Friends drive up for the day from Toronto, or in the case of Mark and Heather and their two children, from Hamilton.
There is always food, drink, and a walk in the woods. This year the fall colours are not yet in their full glory, but the hills and fields were still peaceful and lovely. Here are two images, with a shot of the gang on our walk through the woods. People with pumpkins will appear in a later post, along with some barn shots and landscapes.
