Pumpkin season


I didn’t take this photo.  It was sent to us a few years ago by one of our Swiss relatives (thankyou!!) and I stumbled across it yesterday.

In Brisbane we can eat pumpkin almost all year round.  And I love it.  So I have been looking forward to pumpkin season here.  Everywhere you drive at the moment there are roadside stalls selling pumpkins.  Most with an honesty box.  We bought a pumpkin last week and despite being very orange on the outside, the flesh was surprisingly pale inside.  There are many varieties for sale – orange, white and even black pumpkins.

To see these stalls is one of the nice things about living in such a seasonal climate.  The mornings are starting to get darker, the days a little cooler, and the change of food appearing in the supermarket (and at roadside stalls) are reminders that autumn is upon us and we are now in our fourth season here.
