Pumpkins On The Porch

When family members come to our house on Thursday for Thanksgiving dinner, they will be greeted by pumpkins on our front step.  We try to keep pumpkins by the front door from Halloween through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

I like having pumpkins around, and not just because they scream “autumn.”  I like the shape and color of them, their plumpness and grooves and bumps and shiny brightness.  When I pull into the driveway after work and the headlights reveal the pumpkins, in all their orange rotundity, I can’t help but smile.
