Fall finally arrived again! And although the weather is not as autumn-y as I’d like it to be (this is a desert, after all), the Pumpkin Garden Festival in Carefree put me in the spirit.

The imagination, talent, and skill that goes into carving and assembling these, not to mention the hours of time put into each one, is inspiring.
