Decorating with gourds.

To continue the fall theme, this is a topic I've gotten a little flack for at home in the last couple of weeks. Apparently, the notion of using ugly little squash-like things as a fall-themed centrepiece is not as intuitively attractive to everyone as it was to me. Aesthetic is a very personal thing but I've been glad to note in the last few days that there are others out there that support my love for the humble gourd.
