Gourd Tree

I happened past this gourd tree yesterday and had to stop for a photo.  The photo doesn't do the scene justice though.  The tree is old and spreads across the entire yard, and the gourds continue like this the whole way around.  Hundreds, I'd say.  It was quite a sight, and the family that lives here definitely appreciates having such a lovely old tree. I was already smiling when the little gourd with the painted face spun around and smiled at me, but that sight really made me chuckle.

Love this! I know you were tickled pink to come across it and get the photo of the painted face!

My first thought was -- did they have a garden to get all those squash and gourds? Surely was creative. I can see why you stopped. I have never seen anything like this for Halloween. Glad you shared it -- barbara

That is great fun Melissa. We saw one in Bennington with little white sheeted ghosts! Never did get over there for a photo. Fun post!
