Dad’s pumpkin


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.)

  • I am totally blown away by the quality of your photos. Wonderful sharp detail and lovely composition.

  • Thanks!

    I use Flickr to upload my photos. It allows higher resolution than many upload services. Most of my photos are shown at 500x300px.

    I enjoyed visiting you site and have linked to it so I can follow your garden. Thanks for leaving a comment!
