I am featured on the Blog of the Day at EdmondsPatch for my post on Pumpkins, With a Natural Twist. How fun is that? It is thanks to my husband for editing my piece "for public consumption". ;)
A little snippet from the post:
I love to add decorations right from nature. A walk
around the neighborhood can inspire all kinds of spooky ideas. Large,
sugar maple leaves (or any leaves with a long, sturdy stem) make a great
lion's mane. Carrots make devilish horns (they look better as they
shrivel up). Boxwood trimmings can form crowns. You can add fallen
branches with leaves or use toothpicks for teeth. I’ve wound up clematis
vines for beehive hair-dos and attached sweetgum seedpods for warts.
With garden snips in hand, the possibilities are endless. Pre-punch
holes in the pumpkin surface for natural decorations like leaf stems,
sticks and branches and pull them through from the inside. It’s fun and
easy for the kids.
