Pumpkins - it must be October. But Manga pumpkins?
Yes. I love the fusion of American and Japanese culture. And I loved this painted pumpkin that was somehow uniquely American.
Yesterday I had a pumpkin flavored coffee. Everywhere, people are munching on pumpkin bread, chock full of pumpkin and nuts. Pumpkin cookies, even pumpkin ravioli, are available for sale. If you don't like to eat pumpkin (true confession, I'm not that crazy about eating pumpkin) there are pumpkins for carving, and pumpkins for painting.
Pumpkins in upstate New York equal fall.
What symbolizes fall where you live?
