My parents have a beautiful pumpkin ripening in their garden. A real nice one! The vine is crawling out across the lawn and my dad carefully mows around it. It looks like they will be able to make a nice jack-o-lantern for Halloween. Or a pumpkin pie.
I have bad news about my pumpkin flower - it did not set. Oh well. :(
(My little Olympus Stylus 720SW camera has a lot of trouble with the combination of orange and green - pumpkin and grass. It does great with the blues of water scenery. I've tried hard to adjust the colors to look natural. Here's the original. Aaargg.)
Pumpkin -- Cucurbitaceae spp.
