The Great Pumpkin Collapse (008/365)

2012 01 08 IMG_8913w
“Greatness collapses of itself: such limit the gods have set to the growth of prosperous states.”

Marcus Annaeus Lucan (39-65), Roman epic poet. Pharsalia, 1. 81-82.

TIME:  1:38 PM
PLACE:  My sister’s front porch
SUBJECT:  Pumpkin

According to my brother-in-law, this pumpkin set a record and was still good and solid until the weather turned warm on Friday.  Now, it’s soft, soggy and squishy.  A shovel is now required for its removal.
