The month of October is here and that can mean only one thing…it’s time for all things pumpkin!*

Pumpkins make for an interesting study subject. Besides the colorful falling leaves of autumn, these orange globes symbolize all things harvest and cool weather.

There’s so many similarities and differences between any number of these squashes, from the round shape, to the curved vertical lines on both the body and stem.

I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of this collection of pumpkins; some lined up on a shelf and some gathered together below.

How about you? Have you ever come across any ordinary structures which suddenly become more interesting when they are presented in a certain manner? Join in the conversation and leave a comment below!

*I don’t know about you, but it seems to me as if there has been an influx of pumpkin-related food items flooding the market over the past few years. I remember the days when the once humble squash used to only appear in pie form, perhaps in a savory soup and/or bread. Pumpkin now graces menus in the form lattes, hot chocolate, ice cream, ravioli…you name it.
