two shaggy-headed guys

These two strange fruits are actually African melons--poisonous, so the seed packet said, but interesting to look at. This morning, while waiting for my tea water to boil, I positioned them on top of these little Cracker Barrel syrup bottles. Mary Garner-Mitchell had cleaned the bottles up, decorated them with twine, and used them as part of an introductory exercise at a recent arranging workshop. Evidently it was extremely hard to get the labels off the bottles, but it was worth it, Mary, because these bottles make great little vases!

P.S. One of the melons didn't want to stand straight on its bottle, so I jammed a little stick into the bottom of it and threaded that through the neck of the bottle.
