For some, carving pumpkins for autumn and Halloween is one of the most fun activities of the year. This pumpkin below was kept simple as it was our first attempt, but there are some amazing delicate designs available for those with lots of patience.
Pumpkin markets are simply irresistible! Just look at those beauties. Here in Germany, Halloween does not get celebrated like it does in the United States. But in the past years, the Halloween tradition of carving pumpkins and using pumpkins as decorations has increased in popularity. This particular market is one of the few in this area of its kind and the farmers grow and sell thousands of pumpkins and gourds each year. People come from all over to purchase them. This image shows just a small selection of the pumpkins you can choose from.
It is the time of the year when the farmers are selling their orange beauties and it is hard to choose which one is the special one to take home. They are gorgeous to use as decoration for the porch and yard and just seem to welcome the fall to the home.
