sometimes things are what they seem

Yes, it happened in Vancouver as we unsuspectingly went about our day. We had to cross a busy street (at rush hour) to get to see it. The traffic lights were not synched up. No cross walk there, either. But we made it.

Yes, this is a real pumpkin. It was not alone. It is big enough for me to sleep in. It is big enough for me to stand behind. I was not dressed up as anything. I was on my way to yoga, so you can imagine. That is why I hid behind it. It was my costume. It is almost as tall as I am, and surely it is as wide as I am tall.

As I said: it was not alone. It had an uncarved partner. You could see the effects of gravity on the way it lay there.
I feel the effects of gravity too. Hence all that work to defy it. And then generously give in to it. If you do not know what I am talking about, no worries. It is a yoga thing.

Now, can someone tell me how you grow such a monster of a pumpkin? Dad? Mom? Anyone?
