Truly Amazing Pumkins

I'm a great fan of this time of year, especially Halloween because it means Pumpkin time.
I have grown my own pumpkin this year and Gav & I will carve it this week ready for Saturday night.
Whilst out on a volunteering trip with work to the National Trust in Slindon this week we passed the most amazing Pumpkin display. It was so amazing on the way back, I stopped the car and went to have a look.

The display was at a the Slindon Pumpkin Festival, from a farm that is on the National Trust land.
I was truly amazed and soo excited to see the display.
It attracts thousands of visitors every year from all over the world.
I have never seen so many different types of pumpkins & squashes.
They sell all the pumpkins and squashes, unfortunately I had no cash on me so I couldn't get anything but next year I there and I will be getting lots of Pumpkins!!
Hope you've had a lovely weekend and that you have a wonderful week.

Love

Hi, thanks so much for popping by and leaving me a message, it's so nice to meet new people.
I tried to teach myself to crochet a few months ago and got very frustrated with it. I must try again!
Good luck with your first craft fair in December, how exciting.

Hi Sophie, that is a fantastic display. Thank you for the Splash Award, I am humbled to think you find me worthy of it. As I still have no computer, I will accept it and do the honors as soon as I have access to one. Again thank you very much. Happy Halloween. Hugs, Margie.
