Colonial Pumpkins

Pumpkins are the ultimate autumn decoration - they add a splash of color, come in all sizes and quite a few shapes, and work with any type of home. On a recent visit to Old Salem, we took these photos of the pumpkins that are decorating this 18th century village this October.

The simple Moravian architecture is a great backdrop for the bright pumpkins.

These pumpkins were possibly grown in one of the large gardens in town, and perhaps their seeds will be planted next year in the same garden . . .
