Hanging Squash

 Hanging squash

A nearby farm stand, bakery and store hangs squash from their apple trees in October.  I think the squash are pretty ornaments, and the last time I was there the sun was shining casting lovely shadows on the squash.

Another squash

I am linking to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 HERE.

You do find the most delightful things to photograph -- of course, I think it's because YOU find them -- I'm not sure how many of us can see the beauty in the everyday/ordinary things that you and your creative eye sees!! Thank you so much for sharing the colorful beauty! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!!!

leaf shadows on squashes remind me of leaf imprint Easter eggs.

Nice idea, love the colours of squash and pumpkins, so autumnal. I wonder how long they hang there.... till the string rots and breaks?
