Pumpkins

Nothing sums up  autumn as beautifully as pumpkins.  I love the colour and am in awe at the amazing varieties that seem to be available.  My mission for next year is to grow my own, but in the meantime we've been enjoying these at our local farm shop.


Psyching myself up for the carving to begin......

  2. Becs,
    Nothing says autumn more than the orange beauty of pumpkins! I really love your collage of pumpkin joy. I expect to see the carving results as well.

  6. Thank you all. Will share the carving depending how it goes (!). My daughter has big plans for our halloween decorations....not necessarily matched by mummy's carving talents, but we'll see! :)

  7. WOW you captured some beauties! We just found a couple for the guys to carve and we were so excited, more so than they will be! Halloween is slowly catching on here and pumpkins are popping up at a fairly reasonable price.

  9. This caught my eye in your related posts. It's just about one year on - yet another reminder of time rushing by. But it's always something to celebrate when we see the colours and textures of pumpkins brightening the world once more. Gorgeous photography!
