Way back in March, as the wheel of the world turned in an altogether surprising direction, these little pumpkin seeds were planted…
With offerings and incantations to the ancients, they blossomed… and grew… (swipe/scroll to see more below)
And look at them now! All grown up and ready to have their guts ripped out before carving…
At this most special, and spookiest time of year, the veil between worlds of the living and the dead is at its thinnest. Today I am honouring our dear departed — and also looking forward to the life after the death.
When the lights have fizzled out in the eyes of the jack o’lanterns, their flesh will rot down into compost — and nourish newly planted pumpkin seeds of life. The wheel of the world will turn again, in anticipation of next October… and next Halloween!
However you celebrate, be safe & be well.
Cool time-lapse photos and fantastic jack-o-lanterns! Happy Halloween!
Thanks Priscilla & hope you had a Happy Halloween 🎃
