Tucked into flower beds and arranged into stylish vignettes, pumpkins, gourds, and winter squash draw attention to special spots all around the garden.
Fall-blooming perennials and annuals dress the garden for autumn, but it’s the pumpkins, winter squash, and gourds that really drive home the seasonal message. Going beyond the usual bowl of gourds or carved jack-o’-lanterns, this garden showcases pumpkins and squash nestled into planting beds and piled among the flowers like bright jewels. The rich red-oranges, buttery yellows, and crisp whites make bold companions for mums and marigolds. On the porch, where displays are protected from the weather, arrangements of autumn fruits and vintage objects create beautiful still lifes.
