    just thinking about next year's family picture with pumpkins makes me smile 😉
    where do you go to get such great pumpkin pictures?
    all the local ones for us, are filled with inflatables and other junkie things…Jack is like “oh yeah. i need to get a pumpkin”, the focus is not on the squash!!!
    Do you carve them any special way??

    We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia. Every time I see the glorious pumpkin photos that start showing up at this time of year I wish we did!

    sara- we go to the cal poly pomona pumpkin patch!! you should go… it is so pretty!!! they have games and stuff but it is only during the festival weekend. otherwise, you can go and pick pretty pumpkins and take pretty pictures any other time of the week!

    susan- we gently nudged the other pumpkins with our feet to make room for the wagon! 😉

    jenny- no halloween in australia?!! i didn't know that!!!

  • Sharolyn says:

    why are all these pumpkins in a field(apart from halloween)? who put them there and what is their purpose? They make some great shots but I'm confused and curious…

    (i'm also from Australia) 🙂

  • Red Boots says:

  • pumpkins and palm trees i love it! such great colors too!!

  • These photographs are absolutely GLORIOUS!!! Love the complementary colors of the orange pumpkins and the blue sky!

    to the australians- i guess the fields where the pumpkins actually grow are much too difficult for people to get to (and maybe yank off the vine), so t (the college students who run this particular field we went to) take it from there and just scatter it along a large, open field for people to be able to pick through much more easily. i don't think pumpkins necessarily have to do with halloween, but that it is grown during the Fall season for the fall harvest. Though, people buy them and make jack-o-lanterns for halloween! I use the pumpkins for decorations around the house, Ben plans to cook them, some people use it for pumpkin pie, and I am sure they have a plethora of others uses. hope this helps understand the pumpkin patches! but one thing is for sure, they do make nice pictures! xoxo

    I love the photo of your daughter holding that big pumpkin. It's just almost too big for her. That's a picture that will be a favorite in years to come, I bet. 🙂

  • Love your pictures. We live in California too, and love pumpkins and palm trees!
