Fall gourds – Society6 collection

I have so very many photos of fall gourds and pumpkins in my portfolio (and can’t wait to add more, when I grow another round of cucurbits next year!). Their pretty colours and patterns and sometimes intriguing shapes make for wonderful photographic models. It’s no

Pumpkin and pine cones – Society6 collection

I’m a firm believer that every season brings its own beauty. Pumpkins and pine cones are just some of the attractions of autumn, along with the glorious reds and yellows of changing foliage. Along the side of the roads, the trees are practically glowing, while

Happy Halloween! This cute orange pumpkin never made it to the jack o’ lantern stage, as I was too busy carrying it around with me like a little pet. I told you I was a bit nuts for gourds. They are simply such fun to

Once I’d plucked these pretty little Festival squashes from my allotment, they were put to work with their friends in my photo shoots. Don’t they just contrast so beautifully with the turquoise background? Sure, squashes and pumpkins are great for roasting and these Festival – or

Basket of ornamental gourds – Society6 collection

I have an absolute soft spot for ornamental gourds. Their beautiful autumnal colours and intriguing patterns and shapes have often had me cooing and clucking in the garden – or shops. Gourds and squashes can make imaginative Thanksgiving or fall decorations, perhaps as a centrepiece
