Continuing in our preparations for Halloween: You gotta have pumpkins. Right? Of course, these aren't real pumpkins, they're the cloned-face wagon train ceramic variety. And this photo wasn't taken in October. And it was taken in the depths of the Great Southwest. Oh, well; they fit in with the color of the other pottery.
