Find the Best Pumpkin Patch in Dallas/Fort Worth
It’s pumpkin time! I love this time of the year. Nice weather, fall décor, pumpkin spice, football, the State Fair of Texas and pumpkin patch pictures is what October is all about. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! The nice weather has already arrived in North Texas and the days aren’t so hot (although it may be a bit before we truly get to the fall temperatures). My fall decor is ready and waiting to be perfectly placed around our house, and October 1st couldn’t get here soon enough. Pumpkin spice has already made its grand entrance as usual, and I have already indulged.
Thanks Starbucks for pumpkin everything.
Last, but not least, pumpkin patches are in the works. Area pumpkin patch owners are already busy creating their pumpkin masterpieces for all to enjoy, and we are so thankful.
