Pumpkins from New Caledonia

Some very beautiful paper pumpkins created by Karine and Giovanni. They had a very good idea: if you do not have origami paper with one orange side and one white side, you can make your own by using white paper and coloring one side with crayons or paint!

This wild pomegranate blew up when it fell from the tree, and it now looks ready to devour the almost defenseless pumpkin! Wild pomegranate found, and photo taken, in Castelnou, southern France.
