Autumn, Fall, whatever you want to call it, has arrived in this side of the world. Even though I live in an area were we don’t get this season per se, I like it a lot. For me Autumn was the season that brought the perfect winds to fly kites when I was a kid. As a grown-up (ish) Autumn fashion is my favorite; the color palette and fabric textures that are used during the season are the best IMHO.
Autumn is a dreamy season. I don’t know why but I have this fantasy romantic dream of traveling to countries in which people are lucky to be able to delight themselves watching the change of color in the leaves of trees.
Anyway, Autumn is also known for being pumpkin season. Pumpkins take over the spotlight and we see them E V E R Y W H E R E. All around us it’s pumpkin this, pumpkin that. There are more pumpkin recipes that I will be able to taste in this lifetime. Pumpkin doesn’t only make it to human grade food, it is also an ingredient that makes pet food healthy. I’ve seen soaps and beauty products that smell or contain pumpkin in them. You can make your home or car smell like pumpkin spice. You can find all sorts of pumpkin apparel for kids and adults. And if wearing them is not enough, you can see pumpkin decorations everywhere.
This got me thinking and I decided to do a little pumpkin research. I wondered if it was possible to find pumpkins in unexpected form or places. I had a lot of fun doing this. I hereby leave you the evidence in The Case of the Pumpkin.
