I've got to buy a pattern and make a rose-ified pumpkin of my own (don't think I'll attempt such a project without one--Michelangelo I am not), but until then, I'll admire the work of others...

This "Thai pumpkin" is actually a kabocha squash;
isn't it lovely?

And, last but not least, I suppose this post would not be complete without a bird pumpkin!

Waiting for the fall :)
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day!
Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
