pumpkins-and-sparrows

It was supposed to be geraniums that I planted in the spring but somehow one pumpkin seed took roots in the bed in our yard. Thanks to abundant rain when we returned from our summer holidays half the yard and most of the fence was covered by it. A steady supply of pumpkins started with start of autumn. They aren’t prize winning orange Halloween perfect Pumpkins but rather small, mottled and pear shaped. The flesh is yellow and sweet.

Here the plant is emerging from an glazed terra cotta planter and fruit is laid out on a silver platter like an offering. Onlookers are three sparrows that looking for their share. The whole setting is placed on an antique (1800s?) Persian Tree of life carpet from Kermanshah. Adding a timeless formality to it.
