Duck... duck... GOOSE!

It's not difficult to figure out how this unusual gourd got its name, is it? Attractive in fall and winter decorations, gooseneck gourds like this speckled one are beautiful either fresh, as shown here, or dried, when they turn a much paler color. One of these years I will grow these funny little gourds, but I found this particular one at Home Depot, and it's standing guard (gourd?) on my side entrance steps along with a few white pumpkins, a ruffly cabbage plant and some vanilla colored mums.
