Shapely squash

Halloween may be lucky timing for this gourd-growing farmer, but he only cares about making art from vegetables, Halloween is famous for bringing out the magic in pumpkins. In the suburbs of Beijing, one grower of gourds is now harvesting ornamental vegetables with eerie shapes. One may feel like Alice in the wonderland of gourds when stepping into Liu Xianzhen's courtyard. Liu grows gourds that he painstakingly shapes to look like other plants, such as pumpkins, and animals, such as swans. Tens of thousands of gourds in different sizes and shapes lay on roofs and long shelves on the ground and hang on walls. Swan-like gourds bow their heads and lazily bask in the rare sunshine.
