My first PUMPKIN(s) "sighting" of the year...
I actually squealed when I stopped to take this picture with my cell phone a couple weeks ago...
Oh, greenly and fair in the lands of the sun,
The vines of the gourd and the rich melon run,
And the rock and the tree and the cottage enfold,
With broad leaves all greenness and blossoms all gold,
Like that which o'er Nineveh's prophet once grew,
While he waited to know that his warning was true,
And longed for the storm-cloud, and listened in vain
For the rush of the whirlwind and red fire-rain.
John Greenleaf Whittier (1850)
