My normal abhorrence of grocery shopping is greatly mitigated by the presence of these beauties greeting me at the market door this time of year.
The variety is amazing. I only bought one. I don't have a photo of the one I bought, but it is rather smallish and a sort of yellow and orange variegated. It is sitting on my mantel. Yes, it spurred me to take down the summer mantel decor finally, so that is worth the $2.49 cost of the pumpkin, surely.
Of course, was I meant to be decorating today (or blogging I might add)? No! I am meant to be getting ready for the quilt retreat. Ah, well, it will get done...probably.
In the meantime, just looking at pumpkins makes me smile.
I want to go here:
