little gourd, with marigold (and hat)

This little ornamental gourd wanted to be in the windowsill, and so did the marigolds, so I combined them. I cut the top off the gourd (not entirely easy; they're pretty hard), scooped out a few seeds, added water. The little gourd does holds water. But my favorite part of this was finding a way to include the cap, because its stem is so wonderful. It looked cute just sitting next to the arrangement, but I like it much better propped up among the flowers. It's held up by a stick that runs from the base of the cap to the bottom of the scooped-out gourd.
