it's pumpkin time!

moin moin! everyone! ;)

guys i noticed there's no post for our fun with photo for Saturday and Sunday, so i thought maybe i will just share to you guys what we did this weekend. Yesterday, we went to a "Kürbisfest" (pumpkin festival) in Börsum not so far from Wolfenbüttel.

It was interesting to know and to see that there's so many kinds of pumpkins. They say there are about 70 kinds of pumpkins. There's a contest on who's got the biggest pumpkin from the region and the final i think will be on October.

It was my first time to see huge pumpkins! and i mean really huge! Here are some of the photos from the festival. The names of these pumpkins are also interesting for me, so guys enjoy viewing!

on our way home, we saw this apple tree and can't help but to take picture of it ;)

just now they are good for deco, and then later we'll make good soup or cake out of it ;)

Have a happy Sunday (pumpkin) everyone! ;)

  6. pumpkins as art- I like it! And I had to laugh when I saw the ones with the faces because in the top pic, the large one that's kinda squished, I thought instantly of an old, wrinkled person with no teeth.

  7. Delightful post! So many unusual varieties. I especially love the pumpkins with the ribs!

  8. o my God the pumpkins are too big! don't they look scary at nite?

  9. The contest should not limit on the size of pumpkin but also on the creativity to decorate the pumpkin.
