Nothing says “fall” like gourds on gourds on gourds, folks.
I took a walk over to Penn State’s beautiful Arboretum this week to appreciate an often overlooked aspect of its annual fall displays: the gourds! From pumpkins to squash to everything in between, gourds deserve more respect.
This little gray dude, who I will be calling “E-boy Gourd,” gets a solid 6/10. It gains points for moodiness but loses some for so clearly wanting to “be different.” It would definitely make you listen to a terrible indie music playlist.
Here, we have “Watermelon Wannabe,” which gets a 3/10 because it’s clearly confused as to what season it is. You’re already mistaken for a pumpkin and now you want to throw watermelon onto the list? Pick a lane, bro.
