Duffy Brown here and I love all things pumpkin. I’m a pumpkin addict. The fist nip in the air meaning the temp falls into the 70 and I start thinking pumpkin. I don’t even have to wait for October to go all pumpkin and I definitely do not have to wait for Halloween. Pumpkin time does not end at Halloween but continues onto Thanksgiving.
That gives me two and a half months of pumpkin!
So why pumpkin?
First of all I love the color! There is not a more prettier fall color than the pumpkin orange color. It’s such a happy color. Not like blah autumn green or puke rust yellow but bright pumpkin orange!
And what are some of my fave pumpkin things? Well, there’s the actual pumpkin of course and all the things you can do with it. Carve it, hallow it out and make a vase, leave it alone and use them all over the house for fall decorations.
Did you know if you put Vaseline on your pumpkin it makes them last longer! Eep a good idea for those outside pumpkin decorations.
But the pumpkin doesn’t even have to be a real pumpkin to be terrific. There are adorable ceramic pumpkins, pumpkin flags, pumpkin doormats... You get the picture.
And then there are all things pumpkin. Pie, cake, cookies, candles. Starbucks has a terrific pumpkin spice coffee, then there’s pumpkin spice tea and ice cream. I love pumpkin spice ice cream.
So what about you? Are you a pumpkin addict? Love all things pumpkin? And what is your fave pumpkin thing?
