I love this time of year. The air is full of magic and wonder. The plump orb of the pumpkins dot the countryside in their fiery orange glory...or so I thought.
I have discovered many different kinds of pumpkins this season. I became obsessed with the Cinderella pumpkin which I cannot find here. My local farmers market is going to grow some next year especially for me, although it is a little for them, they are also pumpkin obsessed. I would like to share some of these colourful globes with you now. If any of you have had the pleasure of actually seeing any of them up close I would love to know if they are as impressive as their pictures.
The White or Ghost Pumpkin. This is my favourite this year and I actually have two.
Look at these beauties! The first one is a Green Jarrahale from Australia. I am not sure what the next one is but isn't it lovely.
These are blue pumpkins although I think they look more green.
There are even striped ones.
Pink, pink, pink! Oh these are so cute. The top one is from Ellsworth Hill Farms in Connectticut. And look at that gorgeous warty one, it is called a Knucklehead Lumina, I call it adorable. I am now on a mission to locate a pink pumpkin for my grandbaby for next Halloween.
This next group of luscious darlings just took my breath away.
First there is the appropriatley named "Green Goblin" . Next we have "La Estrella" and last is "The Mini Fairytale".
I save the best for last. The "Cinderella" pumpkin. Ah, can't you just see the Fairy Godmother touching this with her wand and "poof!" a coach.
