Pumpkins Galore!

Pumpkins are a much loved member of the squash family, Cucurbitaceae.

There are actually only four species of squash but many cultivated varieties have been bred from these four.  Here is a multi-coloured collection to brighten your day.  If one takes your fancy, just hover over the picture to discover its name.

There are so many beautiful pumpkins around that I have decided to have a Pumpkin Week this week.  Watch this space each day for a pumpkin-related post.

Today’s pumpkin post is linked to Pixelventures’ HarvestTwo Cents’ Harvest and Mosaic Monday.

  1. They are gorgeous. 🙂 I especially love the white ones. Actually, I’ve always loved the white ones and the French le poteron pumpkins. I think those are my favourites.
