Garden Tuesday - Pumpkin

Pumpkin


For your gardening pleasure today, I bring you my Halloween pumpkin. "But Pam," you might say, "it's almost Christmas. Why are you showing us an old picture?" It's not old. It's my Halloween pumpkin, still looking good as new. "Wow, Pam, what's your secret?"

It's easy I practiced a little TLTC on it.

TLTC?

To Lazy To Carve.

P.S. Please disregard the lousy paint job on our porch post.

Beautiful pumpkin!
Is there a magic-marker face on the other side?

that's a pretty pumpkin. don't the squirrels eat your pumpkins? our one pumpkin became a hidey-hole for two squirrels! i'd come upon them as they would scramble out the pumpkin and scurry into the bushes.

It's amazing how long they can last if you don't carve them.

Beautiful punkin' and great shot! I am often TLTC! :) But, the good side of that is they last a fairly long time! Blessings, Lisa

Ours are wilting out front...after the little boys carved them they went on the pillars next to the street...where they remain...

What a beautiful pumpkin !
I've got an itty bitty one that still looks pretty good, so I'm trying to figure out how to work it into my Christmas decorations. It's too nice to waste, you know?

And thank you Pam, for the sweet comment on my blog. You really made my day.

Lovely pumpkin, perhaps you should paint it up like Santa Clause. :)

Paula said...

Wow! I think we should see how long it lasts! I love your porch ... do you decorate it for the various holidays?

Andrea said...

Lol! You got one step further than I did...I didn't even manage to get a pumpkin this year!! :)

I almost took a picture of some of my pumpkins yesterday after they were coated with light dusting of snow. Yes, I still have my pumpkins out with the Christmas lights because I practice TLTC too. Nice pumpkin. Great color & shape.
