Evening light over the most sincere pumpkin patch

Night falling

The beginnings of a pumpkin

Evening light

The pumpkins are getting so great around here at the moment, they need an old rubbish bin to support them!

I love our backyard but I especially love it as the sun is going down, which at the moment is at about 7.30 p.m. There's something so soothing about the light as the day draws gently to a close.

Linus: He'll come here because I have the most sincere pumpkin patch and he respects sincerity.
Sally Brown: Do you really think he will come?
Linus: Tonight the Great Pumpkin will rise out of the pumpkin patch. He flies through the air and brings toys to all the children of the world.
Sally Brown: That's a good story.
Linus: You don't believe the story of the Great Pumpkin? I thought little girls always believed everything that was told to them. I thought little girls were innocent and trusting.
Sally Brown: Welcome to the 20th century!

~ From the movie "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!"

Our pumpkins are massive for some reason...the one I photographed was one of the smaller ones! Do you know any good pumpkin recipes? Our lemons just won't ripen though - how are yours faring?

Only one green lemon on our baby tree, but Mum's tree has about two hundred.
Pumpkin soup for sure, also pumpkin scones.
The good think about pumpkin is you can cook/mash/freeze.

I really love the photos of the sun behind the trees!
Have a nice weekend!
