Who doesn't love a pumpkin?
Especially a gorgeous one.
This little green plump-kin was home grown.
It's such a beautiful little pumpkin,
the only greenie this year. He turned out to be in a pack of
seeds that were just gourds (supposedly). He took us by surprise!
He has very firm flesh.
I think it's of the Jarrahdale variety.
I love the soft color of the skins
and the dry textures of the stem.
It seemed like such a magical little garden pumpkin....
I also brought in some milkweed pods from the nature trail.
They too were a textural mystery-
feathery, velvety, and spiny.
They could almost be mistaken for a sea creature.
