Pumpkins & Lanterns

Tonight we will be going to see the annual Lantern Parade in Sefton Park, which apparently gets more spectacular each year, but this is the first time I've ventured out to see it!

I mentioned that my DD1 made pumpkin lanterns to decorate her 40th birthday party and she has allowed me to share some of the photos. She got together with a couple of her friends, all artists, to have a girly pumpkin making party, the day before her birthday party, and I think you'll agree that the results are simply amazing!
They make a change from the usual Jack O' Lanterns for sure!
These will all be on the street outside her house tonight!
Stay safe and have fun if you are doing anything for Halloween.

I only once tried to carve a pumpkin - it was jolly hard work. I take my hat off to those girls - what talent - they really are superb.
Love the poster for Sefton Park - wish I lived nearer bet it was spectacular - hope you hae some photos.
