Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

So many pumpkins, so little time

Happy Fall, ya'all!

I think the top pumpkin is really exquisite. The folks at the Morris Farm Stand in North Carolina didn't know the name of this particular type.  The delicate markings made me think of this month's country living cover:


The delicate toile tissue paper on the left large pumpkin made me think of that top pumpkin pic taken at the farm stand. Some men see pumpkins as they are and ask why, I dream pumpkins that never were and ask "Why not"? (from pumpkinnook.com.  That quote cracked me up.  JFK actually said that about something other than pumpkins.)

One caveat.  I love the way those Country Living pumpkins look, but if you are covering up pumpkins with tissue paper you may have too much time on your hands.  Maybe you should volunteer at a soup kitchen ministry.

Finally, a humble, ordinary pumpkin and its intellectual lightweight companion in my front yard:

Loved the photos, and I have the issue of Country Living, read it from cover to cover today. Been suscribing to CL for over 20 years.

I thought the same thing about those Country Living pumpkins. It would be interesting to see a picture of them in a month or two.
