Last week when I was up at the L.A. Flower Mart getting flowers for the wedding reception I caught a glimpse of some pretty fun looking pumpkins. So I decided to drive up and pick out a few...
My sister came along and we filled up my car (no, they are not all mine). My favorite are the ones with the "warts" all over them! I researched them and the warty pumpkins are called "peanut pumpkins" and are originally from France. The real name for them is Brodé Galeux D’Eysines and I heard they are excellent for making pies. That is probably not going to happen over here anytime soon (making pies) ... I am still waiting for my new range (a long story).
I planted a few of the leftover wedding plants ...
And spray-painted a couple of the pumpkins gold.
I hadn't planted any flowers all summer long trying to conserve water and my entry was getting a little tired looking ... the new plants and pumpkins give it a nice little lift!
And how lovely that the evening after I planted we got our first rainfall!
I brought a few of the pumpkins inside too. I'm feeling a little more "in season"!
