Pie Pumpkin, Tomato, Osage Orange. The osage orange isn't edible, but it does smell like an orange, and people put them in their basements because the odor repels spiders.

Ah! The 'brain' vegetable is revealed. I've never seen anything like this Judy. And it really smells like orange? How fascinating.

I enjoyed everyone's comments yesterday on the "brain vegetable" as Alexandra calls it! Also could NOT get that song "Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts" out of my head yesterday (thanks a LOT Rock! I hope you heard it over and over in your head all day too!)

This is a very nice still life. A nice trio with a classic triangle arrangement.

I had forgotten all about the osage orange. My grandmother used to keep them around - thanks for the rekindling of memories.
