Love these decorative gourds. They come in all shapes and sizes, luring me into buying them every year with their gorgeous oranges and greens. Right now I have some lying in my windowsill, some of them a gift from my sister-in-law, Paula. I love them and they look beautiful, but sometimes they also seem a bit silly as they serve no other purpose than to be pretty. Not like a basil plant or a basket of apples that you can turn into something tasty. But perhaps they don't need a purpose, other than to make me smile... Have a great weekend!
