A few years ago I had seen the bright idea of using pumpkins as planters for fall flowers. I quickly grabbed three pumpkins, hollowed them out and placed mums inside. They looked great for about 4 days and then the pumpkins began filling up with water, and rotting because I had never created drain holes. So I grabbed three more pumpkins, created drain holes and repotted. However they began rotting again quite quickly. Just like a carved pumpkin their lives were short lived. So I abandoned the idea until now.
Using a fake carving pumpkin I made a cute little spot to sit my mums for the fall season.
Then grab your resident cutie pie and use this nice little spot for an impromptu photoshoot.

Happy Pumpkin Planting!
