Its become a yearly tradition now to go and choose our pumpkins from the nearby pumpkin farm. I love how much choice they have there, its amazing to see so many different colours and sizes all in one place. They make the most wonderful displays too, like this Spitfire and D Day landings mural, depicted in a huge variety of pumpkins and squash.
We came home with far more than we had intended to buy, as usual. Archie chose a regular pumpkin, (which he carefully decorated with felt pens when he got home) while Elizabeth and I chose some of the scalloped flowery shapes and a few tiny ones we couldn't resist. I'm hoping I'll get away with having to carve one this year, opting for a simple display of different shapes and colours instead.
