Pumpkinville

Around here, there are still a zillion pumpkins on display, all different kinds. There are inflatable ones outside in the dark.
                               There are ones made of hay bales.
                                     There are patriotic ones.
                                        There are tiny ones in plant hangers.
                                        There are beautiful teal green ones.
                                    There are ones in front of flaming bushes.
                                There are ones made of etched glass in store windows.

                                            There are spooky ones with cobwebs.
                                          There are ones with trios of scarecrows.
                                          There are ones that are really gourds.
                             And we have ones hand carved with skeletons on them, in the bank.


In fact, it looks like the whole town has turned into a harvest!


“The God who gives rain in both spring and autumn and maintains the rhythm of the seasons, Who sets aside time each year for harvest and keeps everything running smoothly for us…”
Jeremiah 5

It is indeed an orangy festival indeed... I remember before I left Sacramento last year, I saw lots of pumpkins at the ranches, ready for Halloween .... :)

These are all so pretty and bright that I would want to keep them around too. I really like the one in stained glass and the giant one made for hay bales.

I'm glad you still have them on display, its such a shame that they all get thrown out the next day.
Hope you're okay now.
God bless

I LOVE all of them. It's nice to see that fall is getting it's fair share of display time. Around here everyone is in a big hurry to put out the Christmas decorations.

That last pumpkin is amazing - it looks like a stencil.

Love all the pumpkins, especially the little ones in plant hangers. Now I can't say I've ever seen red guards and they are really nice. Thanks for sharing

Whoever did the skeleton pumpkin should be a surgeon! I cannot imagine doing that.
