Our Pumpkin Harvest

When I look at this collection on our outside table full of pumpkins it conjures up in me all the recipes I can think of in making pumpkin soup, pumpkin scones, pumpkin cake and pumpkin bread. But what is really wonderful to see is the joy in the eyes of our friends leaving with one or two pumpkins tucked under their arm.
What a fortunate life!
What a beautiful collection of textures and colours here to feed the creative imagination!

  1. Oh, what a beautiful collage of color and shape! Your pumpkins are d-i-v-i-n-e and certainly inspire me (a continent or two away) - what a bountiful harvest.

  2. What an amazing photograph ... and in the heat of summer makes me think of cool autumn nights.
    I love the colours,
    Very best,

  3. Hi Christi and Barbara
    Thanks for the lovely comments on our pumpkins.
    It is truely incredible to think we are having below zero temps (white everywhere on waking - beautiful!) whilst you are basking in gorgeous sunshine. A beautiful time for growth of roses whilst our earth lays dormant and still gathering energies for new growth soon. WOW I can hardly wait for that - the beginning of a new cycle of rosebuds, flowers and berries. We are picking the most juicy oranges and lemons at present.
    Cheers to you both.

  4. Those pumpkins look gorgeous. I think bountiful is a great way to describe this harvest. Lovely of you to share with others and to show the pic here. Nature provides us with such inspiration.

  5. Dian - if you had of come for a visit you would have gone home with a pumpkin too. It would be lovely to share with you.

  6. Love your wonderful harvest Suzy. The wonderful colours and textures are so warm and comforting. I don't grow them in my tiny garden, but always have some sitting on my
    kitchen bench as "decoration". Are they "Jap" pumpkins? Queensland Blue's?Would make a wonderful quilt or still life painting!

  7. Hi sweetie- how FANTASTIC they are-
    Suzy I don`t normally ask for gifts, but I would love to try sawing a few seeds of those, if you will think of me, when the harvest from this year ,in some months - are there, and you collects seeds again ,PLEASE
    here it is not easy to buy so special seeds, mostly the plain ones.
    See you soon- thankyou for sweet letter, I so hope your foot or leg is better ,dear friend.
    Love and hugs,Dorthe and kisses,too


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
