We decided at teatime today that we wanted to make a pumpkin lantern. Cue a mad dash round several supermarkets only to discover that there was not a big orange pumpkin to be found in Edinburgh! I did manage to hunt down this gorgeous green squash though and immediately snapped it up (inspired by Zoe’s love for a similar squash earlier in the week). My boyfriend and I have different approaches to pumpkin carving so after he’d done the hard work of hollowing it out we took a side each and got to work. The finished result is this split personality squash with a scary vampire on one side and a spooky house on the other. I love it!
