Thing of beauty: Her pumpkin



These are the last few days in which a weary soul thinking far behind calendar might be able to plant pumpkin in time for Halloween. Look, anything is possible and if you are counting on a little magic to make it happen then this is your pumpkin. The magnificent French heirloom
Rouge Vif d`Etampes.

Come time to harvest, the children will know this pumpkin in darkness, its shapeliness was the inspiration for Cinderella's pumpkin carriage.
