Cinderella's pumpkin carriage!

Last Sunday, the boyfriend and I went to see the Slindon pumpkin display; made by a local farming family the yearly display has certainly become popular and after seeing lots of pieces about it in the local paper I was pretty keen to go. This year, as you can probably see, the pumpkins have been arranged into the magical pumpkin carriage and castle from Cinderella! Bippity boppity boo...


The scene is made from over 50 varieties of pumpkin and 30 varieties of squash and you can buy most of these to take home too. Pumpkin soup, anyone?  It’ll be on display at Top Road, Slindon, West Sussex until the 30th November, so if you’re not ready to let go of autumn just yet, I’d highly recommend stopping by.



After enjoying the pumpkins we decided to explore Slindon further and went on a walk through Slindon estate, it was such a beautiful day with a bright blue sky and once again I spent lots of time playing with the camera and taking photos without using auto! We found an empty barn to explore, some sort of monument structure and had a little picnic!

    1. They donate some of the money raised to charity too, so it's for a good cause :)

    1. They had some really clever carved ones, including one with a squash turned into a witches hat on top! x
