Laura has a Mumkin on her Front Porch

When I visited last week in Columbus, Laura had a Mumkin on her front porch. (James,too)

A pumpkin decoration with the top off and filled with a chrysanthemum plant. Do they have mumkins where you live?  It was new to me. I guess you could turn it around after Halloween for Thanksgiving time so the Jack-o-Lantern face is in the back. I thought it was cheerful.  

When I googled the word Mumkin,  I came up with a totally different definition from the Urban Dictionary.  

Anyway it was cute and the mums were all still buds. Maybe it has since bloomed. I will have to ask.  What will they think of next?

  2. What a great idea! I have never seen this before and it would be the biggest pumpkin I have ever seen too :-)

  7. I actually saw one of these two weeks ago at the grocery store; and I immediately thought of you, and imagined that you would think it was a funny pic. Now look here – you’ve gone and found your own! :)
