Pumpkin found hanging in pear tree
GREENFIELD, Iowa (AP) - September 19, 2011 (WPVI) -- An Iowa couple have discovered an eerie presence in their pear tree, just in time for the approaching Halloween season.
A Des Moines television station reports that Phil and JaNelle Lovely recently discovered a pumpkin that appears to be growing in the tree at their Greenfield home, 50 miles southwest of Des Moines.
They say they have no idea how the pumpkin ended up in their tree, but it appears to be the work of Mother Nature. A nearby garden vine climbed the tree, giving the now-green pumpkin the appearance of having sprouted from one the tree's branches.
JaNelle Lovely says people have been stopping by to see the suspended pumpkin since it was discovered on Labor Day. She's hoping it remains in the tree until it turns orange.
