Preparing Pumpkins for Halloween


Resident Joyce and carer Meg were preparing a few of the Pumpkins ready for Halloween at the Garden Club with our Gardener Tracy, Joyce used a spoon to scoop out all the insides of the pumpkin "It’s hard with a spoon" she exclaimed, before we knew it Joyce decided to get the insides of the pumpkin out with her hands, "Oh it’s all slimy inside!" she said, then burst out laughing Companion Ann Marie carved out the pumpkins with the residents after a discussion all about Halloween and what happens on this day. After all our hard work finishing the pumpkins, we enjoyed a hot drink and a piece of cake for our efforts, and we enjoyed every bit!
