The Pumpkin Party.


It's sort of an annual affair here at The Potters House.
Not really Halloween...nor 5th November...and all that.

It's The Pumpkin Party.

 It starts with the pumpkins....normally grown by the potter...
...but this year...failure....bah!...

Never mind ...we bought one each for the grandgirls and as they were all together this week...
...let the carving begin.


It's hard for the grown-ups to stay out of this ...we want to get involved...always!



                    "Just look what a big head I have"

"That's nothing ...look at mine!"



Serious stuff this...seeds in one bowl and flesh in the other.

Seeds in the oven with olive oil and sea salt...
and the flesh for a pumpkin pie! 



 Lanterns glowing...


...bonfire crackling...care of the potter...



...old friends from Marseille join us...



...fireworks sparkling...





...then let the fun begin...

"Nevie-pie cakes"...has a go for a swinging dohnut!!




...a grandgirl takes it all in her stride...






...I can't let myself down...gotcha!!

  1. The doughnuts are a great idea; I always hated apples on the end of strings. Well done the girls, they did a grand job!
