Lunch Break

Yesterday, October 26th, was National Pumpkin Day, as I
discussed in an entry here on TLLG's Blogger; but in terms of New York City (where I live and have my urban garden), today, October 27th, is the day to enjoy pumpkins. And the "powers that be" in Central Park are honoring the day with a special event, which I've tried COUNTLESS times to "announce" in an entry on tumblr as today, is Saturday, which is not part of my schedule here on Blogger! However, tumblr seems to be having technical difficulty; hence this non-scheduled post which I hope you enjoy! 

Central Park is close to where I live, and whenever there is an event taking place there, the flowers, grasses, herbs, plants, succulents, shrubs, trees and vines as well as the bees, butterflies and birds that visit us, get very excited and want to do something special here to show our appreciation for living so close to the park.

So in light of this, a few of my visiting birds (the mourning doves and finches) agreed to "pose" for photo-ops with one of  Jack-O-Lanterns who is in town for Halloween. (The other Jack-O-Lanterns which visit here can be seen in images on greeting cards which I've created and that are available in the storefront of my web-site, Patricia Youngquist Photo-Art).
We hope you enjoy the following photo-ops!

ANOTHER Game of Hide 'N Seek???????


Jack-O-Lanterns are not the only variety of pumpkins being honored today, but don't tell them that, and, with this in mind, we will leave you with a photo-op of one of my mourning doves mimicking an eagle atop a "regular" pumpkin and a sincere wish that you find a way to honor this season of pumpkins!

BTW, we'd love to hear about your experiences with pumpkins; let us know by posting in the comments field below. If you are new to doing this, please click here for directions. P.S. 
FYI Re my asterisk*: The gender of a Mourning Dove is hard for me to determine, as behaviors are the only outward signs to determine the sex in this species.)
