Decorative Gourd Season
I’ve always loved Autumn and all the flowers, berries, grains, squash and pumpkins that go with the changing season. When I saw this huge sun-bathed crate on the barn floor I wanted to crawl right in and explore the marvelous textures of the different gourds.
Not everyone feels about squashes and pumpkins and gourds (Oh, my!) as I do. In 2009 a rather…urbane and witty gentleman wrote a classic humor piece on the American obsession with gourds for McSweeny’s.
I’m going to include a link to an Atlantic article which in turn contains a link to the McSweeny’s aricle. I laughed in 2009, I laugh when I read it now.
Fair warning, language. Earthy language. Funny stuff.
