A couple of years ago, I solicited help from my family to carve some nature-themed pumpkins for a Birds & Blooms photo shoot. Do you remember them in the magazine last year? It was a great excuse for us to go beyond ordinary jack-o’-lanterns designs. My favorite one was the owl. (Thanks Scott, Maggie and Steve.)
