Another first.

 My first pumpkin of the season. Imagining, before the first day of autumn this Friday, what I could carve on its face, what decorations will go up soon around its spot on the porch. Yet again this year, I have no pumpkins of my own (ones that I have grown.) The garden was going so well, so strong, until I was away for three days, when they just weren't watered the same, and about a month later I believe they became the victim of a fungus, and the plants never yielded any fruit.

 I will try again, more determined, next year. But until then, I am more than content imagining how I can carve this beauty. 

First pumpkin, 2011
