Today is the final day of Blogtober and this post is going to be all about pumpkins!
I had this idea of getting two pumpkins this year, one small one and one of these tiny Munchkin ones, I got both of these from Sainsbury’s.
How many seeds do pumpkins have though, seriously? Even in this small pumpkin there were loads! It felt like they were going on forever.
I decided to draw a few bats on the pumpkin as well, I then indented the design slightly into the pumpkin. We’ve had bats visit our garden this year so I wanted to add some in somewhere.
I put a little flickering battery tea light in the carved pumpkin, I got a pack of gold coloured ones from Fermoys garden centre a few weeks ago.
I was going to bake a few pumpkin shortbread biscuits as well but because the pumpkin wasn’t very big, I found there wasn’t really enough to make anything with so I decided to leave it. I also decided to leave the second pumpkin as it was without carving it, I thought it looked great as it was.
I actually think Blogtober went by pretty quickly. I’m going to be taking a couple of weeks off of blogging now to concentrate on other things but I’ve enjoyed doing Blogtober this year though.
