Isn't this a beautiful display? I love the complementary colors and the beautiful shapes found in the gourds and pumpkins. See how the vines swirl around and make gracious curls? And the grapes. . .so sweet and good. The purple ones are monukkas, a seedless table grape that are highly sought after and quite expensive unless you can field pick them yourself. They've been a treat in my family since I was a small child. Then and now, I enjoy picking them and drying them in the fruit dryer, making delicious raisins! Store-bought are not the same after eating a fresh-dried monukka raisin!
