On our way back from my favourite shop (Waitrose for those of you are new to Gigibird) I whined sufficiently for Nigel to take a detour to Slindon to see the Pumpkins.
Slindon itself is worth a detour…..it really is picture perfect…..Miss Marple might live there if she didn’t live where ever it is she lives (before anyone points out I know she is fictional) I spotted 3 Farrow & Ball(ed) houses which caused great excitement for one of us and then we found Pumpkin heaven.
It apparently has been a terrible year for pumpkins; however you wouldn’t know it by the wonderful display the 85 year old veteran pumpkin farmer puts on. He's the one up the ladder!
I was in heaven clicking away on my camera (asking permission first) but the light wasn’t in the best position for general shots so I concentrated on close ups…..
After reading that Crown Prince made thick creamy soup I settled on buying one rather than the classic orange variety.
I even got a few culinary tips and I will post the results should they be worthy of a photo.
The pleasure of my £2 purchase continued on returning home….I found my F&B shade guide and tried to colour match my pumpkin!
I shall unpack the food shop later – priorities…..
I wish I had bought more....
