Orange is so yesterday.
Here in New England, white pumpkins
, once a novelty, are becoming increasingly common, and these intriguing white orbs are all the rage when it comes to chic autumn decorating. I bought my first white pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch at the South Congregational Church

came out pretty cool, I think. This year, I've even seen white pumpkins for sale at Wal-Mart!Want to learn more about these curious albino pumpkins?
