Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

It was challenging to rewrite this children's rhyme so I could allude to the glass pumpkins.  It was worth a try: Peter, Peter pumpkin eater Found a pumpkin but couldn't eat her Ripe and luscious Oh so sumptuous But alas Peter had to pass The squash was made of glass!!! Thousands of glass pumpkins were on display at Rinconada Park in Palo Alto for the 16th Annual  Great Glass Pumpkin Patch. What a delight to see the unique artistry in each of these fragile pieces neatly arranged in rows. There were baby pumpkins. And there were see through and candy striped pumpkins. A pumpkin teapot.  Don't you wish you had one of these? Alas, October 2nd  is the last day of the exhibition and sale. Don't miss it! The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch is at Rinconada Park, 777 Embarcadero Avenue, Palo Alto.  Go to this link for more info: *  *   * Images by  Charie
