Pumpkins aren't really a thing here, except for a couple of weeks in October. Jack o'lanterns were invented here, but originally they were carved turnips and, judging from photos I've seen, they really do look creepy. But these days Halloween decorations involve pumpkins, not turnips. The seamstress' shop down the road has this very creative pumpkin in the window. I love her!
Someone clearly has no plans to drive anywhere for the time being.
The barm brack has been eaten and we changed our clocks back last weekend. Tomorrow we turn another calendar page and move deeper into autumn and closer to winter. Yay!
