Autumn’s Vases: Gourds & Pumpkins

My chickens believe that my mums are for standing on and walking through, which is to be expected, but when I find the broken stems my feathered vandals have left behind, I can’t bring myself to throw them away. 
A recent trip with my daughters to a local pumpkin farm provided the inspiration for giving a second life to the broken mums.
This Cinderella pumpkin variety is my flock’s favorite flavor. 
Simply cut off the top of a gourd, scoop out the center, add water & fill with flowers.
Kate, my Speckled Sussex hen, always has to know what’s going on and whether there’s something edible to be had.
