Ode to a Pumpkin

It is that time of year. Are you seeing them everywhere you turn? Pumpkins. In shop windows, on front porches, in the pumpkin patch, in the front yard, on the sidewalk. Sitting on tables, sitting on chairs, sitting on patios. In, on and sitting everywhere.

There are carved pumpkins, painted pumpkins, appliqued pumpkins. There are pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread. There are orange pumpkins, black pumpkins, silver pumpkins. There are tall skinny pumpkins, short fat pumpkins, huge obese pumpkins sitting on their side. The pumpkin is the very essence of Fall in every way it is displayed, eaten and enjoyed. And so goes my Ode to a Pumpkin. And yes, I have pumpkins decorating my patio, my tables and even in my home office. ENJOY!
