Pumpkin things mostly

This was the pumpkin I carved the day before Hallowe'en, when it was done...

Time passed. As is the fashion among pumpkins, they slowly rotted and started to look really interesting and disturbing. This was taken about four days ago:

I'd planned to take more photos of them today, but the snow sort of threw everything off, as did the fact that people who didn't know that I meant it when I said I was keeping them around to photograph as they rotted threw them out. I went and found them and took a photo anyway.

And -- authoring be damned -- this was undoubtedly the most important thing I was involved in today.
