Get out the pumpkin orange!

This was also the day of the 14th Annual International Big Draw Day.  Puget Sound residents were invited to The Burke museum to participate.  We in Tacoma, however, celebrated the day with our regularly scheduled outing.  The Urban Sketchers Tacoma met at Spooner Farm for our fall sketch outing.  Except for 2 short boughts of sprinkles, it was a glorious autumn day.

I was amused by the spider sculpture in one of the several pumpkin patches.  It’s made of hay bale and plumbing pipes!

The front of the farm store as beautifully decorated.  I think this might be my Thanksgiving card!

There were 14 sketchers by Frances’ count but some had to leave before the group photo.  A helpful man at the next table over took our photo.

There was a lot of pumpkin orange used in these sketches!

All my photos are here.   Here are just a few around the farm:

I was amused, also, by the wheelbarrows.  Here they are all stacked up, ready for the onslaught of pumpkin buyers

And this is the Spooner farm version of shopping cart return!

These pumpkins are massive.  I don’t know how one would lift them into a wheelbarrow!
