The Party's Over

I mentioned in my last post that we went to Jordan's Farm in Cape Elizabeth on Wednesday.  They really do have glorious produce, and I can't resist their displays, like the old bathtub above full of pie pumpkins.

But what charmed the same part of me that's drawn to the most forlorn, Charlie Brown-lookalike tree on the lot every December were the jack-o-lanterns awaiting their demise after the farm's Halloween revelries.  

Charred, withered, and one short step from the compost heap, these guys had character.

Especially this one below, who reminded me of myself most mornings of late.

What?  You wanna piece of me?


  1. That last picture is hilarious!!! I thought it was a pic of me!! My mood was like that this morning!
    Thanks for the giggle!!
    Cheers, Karen

  2. Charming and funny pumpkins :-)
    I wish you a good weekend with lots of joy.

  3. They look like they have seen better days! x

  4. I love these! They must be cranky because Halloween is over. That third one is hysterical.

  5. You know, I don't think I've ever seen a group of jack-o-lanterns that looked so real. They really do have personality.

  6. Gosh, post party, those pumpkins do look a little cranky...LOL! Fun photos, Gigi...that last one is hilarious! Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS)) Oh, and thank you for the lovely comment you left at my place! :o)

  7. For some reason, I just can't picture you looking like that in the are too sweet and kind to be grumpy! :)

  8. i am so with melissa ~ you, oh kindest soul, could never be grumpy ... and besides these well loved pumpkin faces are just ... well ... more loved and that's a good thing ...
    to be truthful, they look like they have misplaced their false teeth ...

    sorry, must still be in the halloween spirit!
    hugs to a wonderful weekend for you and your fella ~

  9. Oh Gigi....I just love these pumpkins....they look so funny and a little sad, gradually withering away, poor things !
    Mind you....they will soon be forgotton and everyone will begin their preparations for Christmas and forget all about the pumpkins....Aaaahhhhhhwwww. XXXX

  10. Oh that was hilarious Gigi...really, I cannot see you like that!

    What bittersweet photo's of them still with their character!

    Lovely weekend to you my friend.

  11. I really think the pumpkins look better right about now. More interesting and full of character.

    Hey, you. Thank you for your email. I loved it. Sloane's birthday is Monday, so we have a full day getting ready for it. But, please know that I have much to say in return. And. I loved your email.

  12. Hi darling Gigi!
    Let me tell you, I've known some people with those faces wonder they look so familiar haha... Miss your posts darling-gotta catch up very soon! Lovely weekend to you & hubby!! xo as always*

  13. Hee cute!
    There is a winding road in the trees, not far from where I live where people line up their pumpkins on the side of the road after Halloween every year. They have been accumulating over the past week, and I swear, I am going to run my car into a tree one of these days as I can't help but look over and giggle at all the funny faces!

  14. I hope I have that much character when I get old and withered! Too funny!
    I had one in our house turn into a pile of mush the other day! YUCK!

  15. That was too funny, Gigi...that bottom one looks like me when my kids were younger and trying to get them out of bed for school...haha..:)

    Have a wonderful weekend, my funny friend! :)
