Orchard Nursery



If you happen to live in the SF Bay Area you must make a trip to Orchard Nursery in Lafayette during the month of October.


 I met up with my sister in law there this morning to walk around the Lafayette Reservoir and squealed with delight when I saw the plethora of pumpkins sprawled about the nursery grounds!









































  
After finding the perfect white pumpkin we left on our walk.  Afterward we celebrated her impending birthday, tomorrow, with a lovely lunch at a wonderful new restaurant, La Boulange de Lafayette on Mt. Diablo Blvd.  
It was a perfect fall day!

Nothing better than pumpkin shopping. I love looking at all the fancy pumpkins. I might got to the Farmers Market this weekend to shop for my own. But I feel like I already have from looking at your great photos.

Ok I am NOW officially in the mood for Fall! Please may I show off your spectacular post over at TLPC!?!
Really...Your photos are incredible and the grey pumpkins are to die for!
Besides going to the beach with my kids...your day was my favorite kind of California day...walking through magnificent gardens and lunch with my very best friend. Thank you for sharing.

Fantastic colors, especially the grey weathered boxes and deep orange pumpkins make a stunning colorway.

I love Orchard Nursery. It is my 'go-to' nursery all year long, but especially for fall and winter holiday decorating & planting.

You mean you didn't find the "great pumpkin". I thought for sure you would have purchased the one in the first photo.

Looks like fun! We are avoiding Hwy 92 and Half Moon Bay until the Pumpkin Festival is over, the fields are full of pumpkins in every size and shape....

It is amazing there are so many varieties of pumpkins now. It really makes it fun.
Sounds like you had a great day. Your pictures are wonderful. They look so festive. We are still very warm in Southern California. I have pumpkins and gourds but they are just sitting here because it's just too warm to think about fall yet. Hope you are having a great weekend.
