the pumpkin patch.


Neutral shades of rich browns and faded greens among brilliant specks of orange. These colours make up the palette for my favourite Autumn haunt. 

My best friend's pumpkin patch. We spent the day out there, picking the best pumpkins and loading them into the truck. Okay, fine -- a good portion of our time was spent frolicking through the patch and playing 'rotten gourd baseball', but the sore arms and dirt-streaked faces proved we did our fair share of work.

Cuddling with the kittens acted as somewhat of a reward, and quite honestly, I cannot think of a better one.

too much cuteness. i die.
My sister and I decided there was no better way to spend an Autumn afternoon...

... so we did it all over again the next day. Because back-to-back days of pumpkins, kittens, Charlie Brown, and best friends are back-to-back days steeped in bliss. 

beautiful rayvn.

I could get used to this. 

What's your favourite way to spend an Autumn afternoon?




  1. Truly beautiful post. The kitten picture- fourth from top- was amazing.
    Have a lovely day!

  2. I reeeally wanted to go get pumpkins today, but I couldn't. I can't wait to go though, especially after this! I love the pictures, and that kitten is SO cute. :)

  3. The colors you don't see in any other season are pretty much my favorite thing about autumn.
    And those kittens...I die too. Beyond adorable!

  4. oh you. here I thought it couldn't get any better and then I read this post. you're amazing.

    twin sister.

  5. gorgeous. i love those grey and white kitties. <3

  6. epic rainbow flare!
    and kittens <3

  7. those kittens a precious. I cannot get enough of your beautiful photography.

  8. I love this, cutest kitten ever.
    I agree with Carlotta, You're amazing!

  9. rainbow flare. I die. Beautiful photos, friend! xo

  10. the rainbow lens flare. oh my goodness. your pictures are too gorgeous, abbey. too gorgeous.

  11. Wow, dear Abbey, you've done it again. These are lovely. Some of my best autumn memories lead back to a pumpkin patch... (:

    sun + pumpkins + kittens = pretty near perfection.

  12. Sounds like such a great day! Beautiful photos... once again. :)

  13. there's not much more precious than a kitten. when you stick that kitten in a pumpkin patch, it intensifies the cuteness x100.

    I can't get over the gorgeousness of your life. you amaze me.


  14. charlie brown airs here in the U.S on thursday, and i couldn't be more excited. there are so many pumpkin patches all over the place, but i don't think we've ever taken the time to visit one.
    *sigh* i know, we have sinned.
    and also, i think the kitten is a perfect model :))

  15. I love these pictures. The sunflare? Plain amazing. :)

  16. Drink tea on my balcony, and smell the autumn when is raining.

  17. The kitties are adorable! My favourite way to spend an autumn afternoon? Drinking tea, sitting in the garden with a scarf on and writing, and baking with my mama. But hopefully tomorrow I'll go to a pumpkin patch for the first time ever, and that will become my favourite way to spend an autumn afternoon.

  18. oh, the kittens. <3 love your photography!!
