what are these?




We always try to have some pumpkins grown for the five grand girls.



This however is a pic from a couple of years ago!

We planted ...yes...well we thought that we had planted pumpkins...


so when the potter went looking for them ...as the time is drawing nigh for pumpkin celebrations!...



... looky look!!...ornamental gourds...well would you believe it...must have bought the wrong packet of seeds.
Still I have wanted a basket of these again for a while...
...I grew them a few years ago and then didn't seem to get them to germinate...weather too cold...weather too wet...weather too dry...you know the usual gardeners' reasoning!


...lots and lots of gourds...


Sadly ...no "turk's caps"...maybe the weather is to blame for that!

  2. What a great surprise. We had a volunteer seed make up a huge pumpkin but I wish it would have been more exotic like yours.

  3. I love gourds Gerry - they look so good in a bowl on the table. You can always buy a pumpkin for Hallowe'en.
