A Day for Pumpkins

Jane and I went to the pumpkin patch today. A stunning morning, replete with tractor-pulled hayrides, the perfect pumpkin selection process, a pint-sized seminar on farming, and a revelation that potatoes have "eyes."

Mom broke part of the stem off when it tumbled about in the van. But Jane assured me that Violet was okay. (Violet the pumpkin??) Good thing we picked a tough one. I'm sure it won't be the first time she gets roughed up a bit by a member of our family.

We'll find a nice dry patch for Violet to hang out until her day of martyrdom arrives. We'll just think of it as ... her coming day of transformation.


  1. violet! i am giggling!

    And your last paragraph, oh, that is so funny!

    great post.

  2. Kind of fits in with our study of Revelation in our Bible study. A day of reckoning will come for everyone -- even pumpkins??!!

  3. Sweet, sweet photos... Jane is never shy in front of the camera now is she?

    What a fun outing!

    I'm curious, what software do you use to make your photo collages? The ones you have made have always looked so nice and I enjoy them so much.

    Good ol' Picasa. It's a little lacking in the 'ease' department, but hey, it's free!

  5. Great blog! Your pictures are wonderful!!!
