It has been a very, very hot September here in Ontario, now October has lifted her sleepy head and it is still warm. Never the less, it is Fall and time to put the gardens to bed, store the pots and summer decor and bring out the orange, red and yellow.
We always leave the old pumpkins at the end of the season in the back field for the mice, chipmunks and squirrels to enjoy. This was all that was left from around 12 pumpkins and it is just so lovely to me. Duffy and Penny's garden is becoming a blanket of leaves now dotted with orange, whit and kind of pink.
I love pumpkins and try to find unusual ones every season. This warty dark green one is as close to black I will probably get....so pretty.
Pumpkins fill every available space on the farm, fountains, planters or just on the ground. The pink ones are called Peanut Pumpkins. I still love the tradition orange the best though.
