Pumpkin Carving


Last weekend was the annual pumpkin festival at the Desert Botanical Garden and I missed it.  I had way too many things going on over the weekend and I just didn't have time for a visit.  However, I did go late Monday afternoon for a walk and I saw this pumpkin sitting at the welcome center.  It's starting to get a bit dried out but you can still see that great big grin!

Looks like it's had a bit too much sun, but the smile is still quite clear!

Quite original that's what we like.

I wish I had the talent to do a carving like this.

What a strange method of pumpkin-carving! I've never seen one where the carving was all in the pith, with no skin left.

Someone had fun !

I think this makes a great Halloween face! I NEVER was able to carve a pumpkin.

I wonder what it looked like when lit up, Sharon?

Quite garish, which perfectly fits this time of year.

I agree with William!

I wish I knew how to carve a pumpkin or even a turnip! This one's great!

Whatever happened to the old fashioned way of carving?
Though this technique does look neat when the candle is inside.

Doesn't look too scary to me; just creative.

In New England, carved pumpkins are everywhere, but not down here in Florida. Sometimes I think that Florida needs a bit more grit and blue collar.
