    Muum, I did not — I found them at an orchard stand in Pennsylvania. I haven’t tried delving into the world of pumpkin growing quite yet…

    Mmmm – I think pumpking patches take a bit of space! Great photo!

    How cute.
    I can practically see Bert and Ernies faces on those little pumkins.

    They remember me of Laurel and Hardy, maybe they are the ones you call Bert and Ernie… Very funny anyway

    That long pumpkin is sure different! I can see why folks think the pair looks like Laurel and Hardy. Happy GTS,

    I think it must be the best shot of these two ever. What on earth are they doing there? Maybe you should sell it to the newspapers….? *giggles*

    These pumpkins are cute and they really do look like Bert and Ernie. It is fun to go to the U-pick farm and look at all the different shapes of the pumpkins. My oldest grandson chose a very round and smooth one this year. It is almost perfect. The younger grandson chose one that had bumpy lumps all over it. He said it looked like it had a lot of warts, and it really did.

    Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed the photo of Bert and Ernie.

    That is so funny! I’m still chuckling…
    Happy GTS,

    Nikkipolani, that’s why I haven’t given it a try quite yet…I fear the take-over of the back yard!

    Chigiy, I didn’t even see it until my friend Betsy pointed it out to me. But it’s so true!

    Katesmudge, if they weren’t in Pennsylvania, I’d paint faces on them immediately.

    Mark, you crack me up…

    Vero, Laurel and Hardy are different — Bert and Ernie are Sesame Street characters — but they definitely resemble Laurel and Hardy, too!

    Aiyana, happy GTS to you, too.

    Captain Lifecruiser, they were just hanging out waiting to be purchased when I caught ’em!

    Sarah, glad to give you a chuckle today. :-)

    Mary, I love how your grandkids selected their pumpkins — so creative!
