gourds and pumpkins and squash, oh my!

The incredible variety of gourds and pumpkins
that are widely available now makes me swoon.
I can't get enough of them.
I mean, just look at the color combo on this one. Yum.
Traditional orange ones still hold a spot on my heart.
(and they're especially lovely if you spray them with a bit of gold glitter paint!)
But, oh my.
These really make it beat a little faster.
Of course, they're not to everyones' taste.
The older gentleman who sold the two below right to me said,
"I guess people like these weird ones now.
To me, they look like they have some sort of disease."
To each their own.
Happy fall.
