If you would like to enter Sykes Cottages competition to win £400 worth of John Lewis vouchers then simply head over to their website for full instructions on how to take part. My entry photograph is the top one, but couldn’t resist showing you more pumpkin pics in the post below!
On our recent trip to the US, on almost ever doorstep was the humble pumpkin.
Carved or painted, pumpkins of all colours and sizes are displayed proudly as a sign of the fall season (known as autumn in the UK) as people await Thanksgiving. The bright oranges, yellows and browns of the season bring a sense of cheerfulness before chilly winter is reached and everyone retreats into their warm homes. Some use it as a decoration for Halloween – and some go the whole hog!
And as well as being a great decoration, they don’t half taste bad in a cheesecake too, so that’s why pumpkins are my best (and tastiest) bit of autumn!
