Halloween

I was driving along on the way to my daughter's house when I spied this display.

 From a distance, I thought I was seeing those round hay bales that someone had painted orange.  But, no, could not be because they were glowing.  As I got closer,  I could not believe I was seeing actual pumpkins.  I stopped, turned around and went back to take these pictures.


Now was it

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,
had a wife and couldn't feed her.
Put her in a pumpkin shell
and there he kept her very well.

PS. Each time I'm on your site, I get a message from my Norton antivirus that they are blocking a site called Sweet Orange ... When I look it up, it says the intrusion is from lamesocial.com. You may want to check it out.

Amazing! What an undertaking to gut those things, and carve them. Not to mention moving them around!

Wow, those are some pumpkins. I am glad I am not the person who has to take down the halloween display...what the hell do you do with 3/4 of a ton of rotting pumpkin?

Those pumpkins are just amazing! I am curious -- did they take all the seeds out? What the heck did they use to carve them with? Normal sized pumpkins have very tough skins. I can't imagine trying to carve those gigantic ones. And really -- how big are the seeds?

Feed pigs.

The seeds were out so I can't say how big they might have been. It was interesting to see.
