Carved Pumpkins


There were some expert pumpkin carvers on hand at the Pumpkin Festival but, I didn't see any really scary ones this year.  There was one with Mickey Mouse but it was sitting behind the others so I couldn't get a shot of it.

They did do one with the Desert Botanical Garden trade mark on it.  I'm guessing that one stayed on site after the festival was over.

These cutters do some good work.

Artists at work. I couldn't do it but I'll bet it's easier than chainsaw sculpture or carving! Our grandkids love to carve pumpkins. I wished they loved school just as much! :)

Not your ordinary looking carvings! These are works of art!

Beautiful work! I couldn't do that fine carving myself.

I'm always impressed by the skill of these carvers!

I find it hard to cut pumpkins to cook them so always wonder how they do it! They are really cool!

I don't think I have ever seen pumpkins carved like that before. They are beautiful!

Great work. Mine would never look that good.

These are pretty neat! I've become lazy and used markers instead of carving the last couple of years.

Unusual works of Art!

No pumpkin carving contests here that I know of ; seems like the Farmers Mkt would be a perfect place for it. I think I'll suggest that for next year. Yesterday our local market gave away candy to costumed kiddies and I forgot about it! Darn! The children with parents in tow are fun to watch!!

Very well carved pumpkins, though I am partial to old-fashioned jack-o-lanterns. Naples is so hoity toity that few pumpkins are available in the stores and hardly any carved ones are seen -- at least in the places I go.

I've seen lots of fruits beautifully carved in South East Asia, but I don't remember seeing pumpkins ever.
