The Enchanted Pumpkin Garden


                                                   
On Wednesday Mr H and I visited a favorite seasonal place....
This year they set up wonderful scenes and this guy forgot to close the door!
Just too funny....the faces are exceptional on these pumpkins. We then stopped by the saloon
There are characters all over the front porch and hard to see they are also inside at the bar. This poor fella got sick on whatever brew they gave him
The talent the staff displayed is fun. We got to talk with the 2 carvers who worked on some of the pumpkins...
Such talent....they scrap away instead of actually carving into the pumpkin, keeping the wall in tack. With the heat they also kept spraying with water to prevent drying while carving. As we walked around we found...

A boxing match...look at the face! There was also the mad scientist...
he has many strange green brews. Probably that is what they serve at the saloon! How about this guy...sleeping
it was a little warm in the afternoon sun but he managed to find some shade. Of course his friend decided to sit under the misters...
not a bad way to get some relief. Not sure what he was building. We also took advantage of the misters and found a place or two to sit. On of my favorite characters was this burlap gal
She was standing among pots of flowers and holding a baby. I would love to have her in my yard!
A lovely day to walk among the pumpkins. As we left the garden to go and have lunch, we found a fisherman

I would have loved to sit and put my feet in the pond....but of course that might scare away the fish so off to lunch we went. Glad you came to stroll in the garden and hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your friendship and kind words. Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for the pictures, Gracie. I saw this on the news the other morning, looked like fun. The guy in the outhouse made me chuckle! Sounded like a nice outing you and Mr. H had. Have a nice weekend!
