Pumpkins, Squash, & Gourds

The Dallas Arboretum has many pumpkins, squash, and gourds on display making the Wizard of Oz display fun and entertaining for families and kids at Pumpkin Village. Pumpkins, gourds, and squash can also be purchased.

 

 

Kids can learn about colors, shape, size, words, and wisdom. It's fun to get creative when there are so many different types of pumpkins, gourds, and squash. It is a great opportunity to incorporate language, tell stories, sing songs, and write poetry about all the things you can see and do at the Dallas Arboretum located at 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, Texas (214) 515-6500. Taking photos is fun too and you can count pumpkins, gourds, and squash too!
 

 

 

Diversity exists her on earth, even when it comes to pumpkins, gourds, and squash. And they are good to eat. There are many tasty recipes to try and sweet treats too. Pumpkin carving is always fun and gets the creative juices going while pumpkin seeds are nutritious and good to eat, especially fun for after school snacks. The smells in the kitchen of roasted nuts and pumpkin spices makes the house come alive with tasty spices as kids get excited about Trick-or-Treating in the Children's Adventure Garden or in their own neighborhood or community places. 

 

 

The wonderful Wizard of Oz exhibit in Pumpkin Village at the Dallas Arboretum is something you don't want to miss. And it's fun to walk down the yellow-brick road and relive the story about Dorothy and her friends, the Scarecrow (who is never scary), the Tin Man, who carries his oil can and has a heart, and of course the Lion who has lots of courage.

 

 

Make fall an adventure kids won't forget and see the incredible fall color and exbits on display at the Dallas Arboretum.

Love all the photos and I love your borders - that is so cute - did you do that in Canva or someplace else?

There's a GINORMOUS pumpkin at our grocery store for $100.00! This looks WAY more fun!

Shannon Lefevre - There's no way I would pay $100.00 for a pumpkin! 

Pumpkin, gourds, and squash displays are fun!

Patricia Feager I love your photos showing just a few of the various varieties of pumpkins, gourds and squashes.  A fun post, for sure! Now how about a post, with photos, showing witches, goblins and warlocks!

I wish Sacramento had a nice arboretum, but we don't.  They add a lot to a community!  I'm enjoying your fall themed pictures, Patricia!

Hi Patricia Feager - Something weird is happening. I know I left a comment on your wonderful blog yesterday. 

That being said.... I have never seen some of the varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds that you have so beautifully displayed here.  I am so glad you shared this so I can keep my eyes peeled especially in our specialty markets.

That is indeed a great deal of variety, it all looks good and it sounds like the kids are learning a lot about it.

Hi Patricia - That's quite a variety on display. They must be like snowflakes, with no two alike. But I'd argue about their edibility : )

Dick Greenberg - I never thought of pumpkins, gourds, or squash being compared to snowflakes, but now that you mention it, I think you're right!!! Tell me, is is easy or hard to live with such a creative mind? You always say the funniest things and you make me laugh and wonder? Could he be right?

As far as edibility goes, I really have to laugh. Whenever I'm a guest and someone passes the squash, I always want to pass but every time I'm ready to do so, someone will say, you really have to try it, it doesn't taste like you think it does and it's good for you. And do you know what Dick? I have never tasted good squash and I will never prepare it in my kitchen, not for me or anybody else.

Hello Patricia, this is definitely my favorite time of the year...at least it was back in Chicago because it meant cooler temps as you know. However, here in Alabama we are still battling 80's & 90's...I didn't miss the memo did I??? It is fall isn't it??????

Patricia we have several varieties of pumpkins, squash, and gourds here in CT as well, but I had not seen the Turk's Turban Squash before.  They almost look like a head piece :) :) :)

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - I'm glad you liked it! If you're interested, I posted another one just like it with the Wizard of Oz theme from Pumpkin Village set up at the Dallas Arboretum a day or two ago.

It's always a pleasure to hear from you!

So much fun to visit Arboretums and I think that is particularly true in the fall.  Going to the New York Botanical Gardens on Sunday to see the foliage and fall displays in its full glory!
