I found a couple of pictures from this past Halloween that I’d forgotten about. These are two jack o’lanterns I created last October, the first pumpkins I have carved in the better part of a decade. The experience was gratifying, in an odd sort of way.
This first one is two-in-one. The smaller green head is a grapefruit I plucked from a citrus tree out back and cut lengthwise. It didn’t want to stay nestled between the larger pumpkin’s fangs, so I had to pin it in place with broken toothpicks. The second one is a violently ill jack o’lantern, vomiting up its pumpkin guts.
I thought both came out fairly well, and I set them on the porch so trick-or-treaters could appreciate them as well.
