Fun-filled Friday: Unique Pumpkins

It’s Halloween, and many people will be displaying their jack-o-lanterns.

I went in search of a pumpkin and was amazed at the varieties I found.

Pumpkins 1These Red Worty Things certainly have personality, don’t they?

Pumpkins 2You’ve got to love a pumpkin called Cinderella,
especially when it looks like her coach.

Pumpkins 3

I have no idea how they came up with the name Wolf. I might have chosen Trunk or something else that captured the feel of those massive stems.

Pumpkins 4I couldn’t find a sign for these, so I have no idea what they’re called.

I didn’t end up with any of these pumpkins.
Instead I opted for a cute little fellow about the size of a grapefruit.


What names would you choose for these varieties?

Would you use any of them in your fall decoration scheme?

  • Happy fall to you. I love pumpkins and miss decorating with them. It doesn’t look like fall here at all!!

      Terri, fall was slow to make an appearance here in the Sierra Foothills, too. It’s only been in the last couple of weeks that we’ve begun to see leaves changing and temperatures dropping. Sometimes we’re forced to act like it’s fall even when it isn’t, creating the mood through our use of decoration even though nature isn’t ready/able to cooperate.

      I was in Hawaii at Christmas many years ago and remember how odd it looked to see Christmas trees when it felt like summer. The residents of Hawaii didn’t let the lack of snow or cold stop them. I admired that.
