More Autumn Scenes in My Neighborhood

In the park.

The Great Pumpkins

A few days ago, the Great Pumpkins arrived at their usual home.

Carving the pumpkins happened earlier than usual this year: a whole week before the holiday.

The owner of the pumpkins posed next to the tallest pumpkin they have ever had,
though she says it’s not the heaviest of all time. She and her husband have displayed giant pumpkins
 for over a decade for every Halloween, and they set the tone for the whole neighborhood.

Smaller Pumpkins and other Creatures

WOW, pumpkin galore!!!!
(I have some tiny ones today, too).

Was at the store on Saturday... make it plural. Christmas all over, near to no Halloween-things!

Love those hands especially.

It’s similar here. People are going crazy with elaborate decorations for Halloween.

I have a friend who used to grow large pumpkins. He often won prizes at our state fair for them. He gave me a couple one year, but I never carved them. These people are brave to do that.

Your neighborhood is getting Halloween worthy and the colors of the trees are amazing.

I've never seen such huge pumpkins. I can't imagine the time it takes to carve each one. They are fantastic.

Hello Mae :=)

The fall colours are so beautiful in your first photo. The tone of the neighbourhood is full of Halloween fun, and the pumpkins are quite extraordinary, the largest I have ever seen.
All the best.
