Pumpkin Art

"Art may imitate wild nature; less often does it dare to place itself in the midst of it, and when it does, it may come out second best." ~ John Hart
A painted pumpkin in the pumpkin patch surrounded by pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, colors and surface textures. Art in nature; perfect for the season.

Update: The warty pumpkin that looks as if it is sprouting peanuts is called Galeux d'Eysines and is referred to as a "squash" by some and "pumpkin" by others. This variety originated in France and the name means "embroidered with pebbles from Eysines". It is difficult to carve but has sweet flesh and is said to be excellent in soup, gratins, purées, preserves, tarts and pies. Seed is available at Everything French Gardening and other places. Just Google the name. French pumpkin recipes are also plentiful on the internet.
