DeLynne has made Australia home for 20 years but still pines for American traditions such as Halloween pumpkins. In Australia, pumpkins are very dear: $24 dollars each! If they cost as much in the USA, I bet everyone's fall displays would be much less extravagant!
I don't buy pumpkins so rarely notice them. However, since DeLynne's report, I've started paying attention. Americans don't realize how fortunate they are to live in the land of plentiful low-priced pumpkins!
At Walmart Halloween day. Wish I could ship a few to DeLynne! Wonder why the indoor and outdoor pumpkins are different prices... Two days after Halloween! Love old farm trucks loaded with a bountiful harvest!
Next year, even though my house sits 2 miles off the highway and there aren't any neighbors per se to admire a display, I'm going to arrange a spectacular one with a whole passel of punkins!
