fairy tale pumpkin as white as the moon


I found a "fairy tale" pumpkin today at a patch today that is white and as pale as the moon. I wonder what special energy it will evoke on all hallows eve. I am looking forward to carving a geisha face on it and photos will be forthcoming. Legend has it that on all hallows eve the veil between the world lifts. I will keep you updated on my experience of this pale ghost.

The albinos are called ghost pumpkins or Luminas. A ghost pumpkin is perfect for me said Princess Haiku, we will look like each other. -Ghostly, that is.

BTW Supposedly the San Francisco Halloween carnival is "off." I will let you know if a quarter million people are ready to give up the party. The city of SF is calling it "Halloween at Home" night. Sounds like a party squash to me.

To be honest with you I've never seen white pumpkins before, I didn't even know they existed til now lol.

Why is the Halloween party off in San Francisco for? Is it because of the fires in San Diego or somethin?

Anyways I finished my meme post.

Take care Haiku. :D

I bought a grey pumpkin
I found only one. I like it. So beautifully different.
Only one can tell a tale too.
It may be a car for mice...

I never heard of a grey pumpkin Cergie. Are you sure it's not a gourd? If they are going to do the Luther Burbank thing I would like a magenta one.
