I enjoy having a small child who enters into the spirit of the day. Yesterday she got up and dressed as a witch all day, a good, kind and beautiful witch of course.
We had a lovely lunch to which she had invited the other little girls in her class from school, they all came dressed up too.
After lunch we went to Ham House to see the Halloween festivities there, and as well as doing a Halloween trail in the garden we spent a while in the kitchens. While my daughter and her friend spent time 'cooking' I was able to photograph the magnificent Pumpkins.
|An orangey Halloween arrangement|
|As the girls were mainly in the dining room|
I concentrated the decorations there
|Lots of pumpkins and spiders|
|I do love the cobwebs, such great fun|
|And very effective|
|More Halloween/Autumnal decoration|
|Scary! This was at Ham House|
|Amazing Pumpkins, all grown in the gardens of Ham House|
|Beautiful shapes, colours and textures|
|I'm not sure, but do you know if these are Medlars?|
I really want to find some and make some preserves
but I think they are only grown in gardens, and are not
a cash crop?
