Pumpkins and Witches


Well Samhain was cut short, really couldn't make it past 8.30pm but we did have a go at giving out treats for the other kids in the area. Also managed to carve out some pumpkins, not nearly as many as last year but hopefully still good. Seems funny that we spent the whole summer growing them for this one evening only for them to go on the compost but then again, that's part of the circle. They will help next years grow and hopefully being back on form next year then we will have lots more. Our witch made another outing with her spells and potions and littleun changed his mind and wanted to be a pumpkin too as you can see above.


So there's some photos, sorry for the blurry fuzziness to them, the camera really isn't good enough for night time shots but hopefully you'll get the gist.

Fantastic pumpkins, so much work in them. I agree it is sad when they are only used for one night but think of the joy you get and it is worth it I'm sure. Happy Winters Night blessings.

wishing you and your family magick that brings joy and wonder, treats that delight and health that sustains you through the hard times. Blessings and love the photos! It seems like more people have had trouble with photos and videos this Samhain, hmmmm, I think the ghosties had something to do with this ;)

My gramma used to slice up my jack-o-lanterns, bake the slices like any other squash, and the mash them up and use them in pies. Our Thanksgiving pumpkin pies were always made from the jack-o-lanterns. There's lots you can do with pumpkins, even after you've carved them. They don't have to end up on the compost pile.
