Pumpkin Love - Pictures

The time finally came to cook the last of 2001's pumpkin crop.  After baking them whole in the oven Faith placed the pumpkins on the porch to cool down.  That night an ice storm moved through the area, encasing the pumpkins in almost a half inch of fresh ice, frosted by a teasing dash of snow.

The inverted "well" of ice  that was frozen on the top of a pumkin.
The ice and stem pulled away quite smoothly, reflecting the pumpkin ridges.

This doesn't have anything to do with pumpkins,
it's a pre-ice storm photo.
