I love autumn.
All these pictures are right out of the camera, these pumpkins are so gorgeous, they need nothing at all.
They are right around the corner from the studio. Not all of them are out of the field. There will be 300 or more when they are all lined up.
I don' think there is anything as vibrant and colorful as a pumpkin.
As I was walking around looking admiring them all, I noticed that they weren't all perfect.
Hard to believe, right??
The field is muddy, from the rain, so the tractor is necessary to transport them.
The work that went into growing these beauties covers months.
I would love to put some of these on my buckboard, but everyone says they would get stolen, being so close to the road.
They would look so nice though, and I want to think that people are good.
Gourds are kind of like people, aren't they??
It's amazing, really, how there can be so many differences in one species.
Knobby, smooth, green, yellow, striped, all different shades and shapes.
Crazy beautiful, right?
Pumpkins though, are all the same color, just different shapes. Still they seem to have different personalities.
Or is it just me??
But look at them!
They seem to be quite pleased with themselves, don't you think?
Kind of looks like graduation day, doesn't it?
But did you know, that as beautiful and colorful as they are..........
as bright, as engaging as they can be.......
They all have a FLAT side.
Yup, tis true.
Where they were laying on the ground, while they were growing, getting beautiful, they got FLAT on one side.
I think that pumpkins are much like people. Beautiful, colorful, the same, yet so different,
full of possibilities.
But no matter how extraordinary, we all have a FLAT side.
Maybe that's what defines us, after all.
