Pumpkin of a Different Color

I got my Autumn pumpkin!

My market had beautiful heirloom pumpkins and gourds.

And, well, you all know how much I love the color turquoise, right?

There they were, a lovely crate of Cinderella pumpkins  in shades of soft blues, greys and greens.

A turquoise pumpkin! I LOVE it!

And, so cool...if/ when I carve it, the insides are supposed to be brilliant orange. How wonderful is that! I usually keep my gourds and pumpkins through Thanksgiving, just carve an orange  jack-o-lantern with the kids. But I may be tempted...


 What type of pumpkin did you all buy? Do you carve a jack-o-lantern every year?
