Pansies and pumpkins

I saw this idea in a magazine, somewhere. I bought some black violas and orange pansies, and hollowed out the pumpkin from our garden (this little pumpkin was the result of a lumina pumpkin getting cross-pollinated with some of our squash, I think).
It took a few tries to get the flower pot to fit, but it wasn't too hard.
Then I took the pot out and planted some of the Halloween - colored pansies in it, and put it back in the pumpkin. I plan to make some for my daughters and friends for fall decorations.
Maybe I'll show some more when I get them potted up. I think I'll get some regular pumpkins, and try one of the Lumina pumpkins, too.
