Darkness is creeping in earlier and earlier, have you noticed? This evening we took a drive to a nearby farm stand that also sells their delicious ice cream. I had heard rumors of pumpkin ice cream. Unfortunately, everyone within driving distance must have heard those rumors; no pumpkin ice cream to be had. Instead I indulged in ginger and peach. Maybe a little hot fudge got involved.
As Neal and I savored what is certainly one of the last ice cream outings of the year, we heard another couple exclaiming over the "pumpkin moon". While the Harvest Moon occurred yesterday, in conjunction with the Autumnal Equinox, making it a Super Harvest Moon, it was still pretty showy tonight, all orange and beautiful, peeking out from behind clouds.
My camera phone couldn't capture the moon, but the pumpkins obliged.
