With autumn already in full swing, the Peanuts prepare for Halloween. The gang goes trick-or-treating, and on the way, they stop at the pumpkin patch to visit Linus because he is missing the festivities, just as he did last year. Undeterred, Linus is convinced that the Great Pumpkin will comeÖ




Pumpkins make me smile!† They come in a multitude of colors, shapes and sizes and I love them all.† Every year, as soon as these small pie pumpkins are available, I look forward to filling my flowerbox with them. To my delight, the squirrels usually don't take nibbles and I leave them for everyone to enjoy right up to the end of November.
