The flaming jack-o-lantern, part 2

Much fun was had at the fire last night, and it wasn't nearly as crowded on my patio as I thought it might be as 1/3 of those invited didn't show up, which is rare for one of our hot dog and marshmallow roasts.

Here are a couple of pictures taken without the flash:





And here are some pictures of the aftermath:

and a close up of the inside



You can see the whole set of jack-o-torch pictures.
