Our family visited a pumpkin patch at the weekend. – A new experience for our little girl, and for me too. In England Halloween is not the same big event it is in the States and we don’t have pumpkin patches. So when we arrived the sight of a pile of orange, green, yellow and cream fruit, smooth, gnarled, elongated and misshapen, made me reach for the camera.
An unusual pumpkin tied with some raffia, or a paper bag filled with a few gourds would make perfect fall hostess gifts. There’s always room for an extra orange pumpkin at this time of year, but these sophisticated versions would be infinitely more appreciated.
