Halloween................................................................. Pumpkins at Tatton

My visit to Tatton Park last weekend was lovely.
 Watching deer roaming the parkland and visiting the wonderful gardens.
All so lovely to see... but Tatton Park had a few surprises up it's sleeve.

 Halloween is close but did you know.... Pumpkins grow on trees.
No?... well they do in Cheshire.
 This tree was full of them ripe and ready for picking.
You never know what you may stumble upon wandering around these beautiful old gardens.
The kitchen gardens at Tatton are massive.
This is just a small section of the greenhouse.

Even the orchards are within the walls to protect the trees from the wind.
The pumkins and marrows made a lovely display.
 looked after by a couple of musicians...
... and a drunk!
If you have two apples... does that make a pear?

Enjoy your weekend.

What fun: a pumpkin tree.
Thank you so much for our visit to Tatton. I always crave going there, but it is simply too far.

I would love to visit these gardens. Suddenly, Kew came to my mind.

Whoever dreamed up the pumpkins in trees deserves to be an honorary Aussie!!

Yes, that IS a compliment ...
