Chipmunks Carve me a Pumpkin

I put this pumpkin out as a decoration, but the chipmunks got started early!
Artist at work:

Final product--a little Picasso like, but they had the right idea. I like that there is a candle hole in the back.


Here is the pumpkin that we grew--twenty pounds, 6 ounces:


The only place it wasn't green was where no light got to it at all, where it was pressed against the 
support stones:


So mysterious! I couldn't bring myself to carve it.
Speaking of chipmunks and squirrels, we have squirrels back again in the tree, instead of hornets,
or fungi, and that makes me happy. :D

Happy Halloween!

    1. In previous years, it HAS been squirrels, but they mostly just eat one huge hole and then go joyriding down the hill:D

  2. Of course it's chipmunks, not squirrels. Squirrels would just make a mess.
