Every year at this time The Met switches up flowers for pumpkins, along with other seasonal choices like Bittersweet and Chinese lantern plants, to celebrate the harvest season...

Chinese lantern plants, Physalis alkekengi, are one of my favorites for the fall. I love their color, the papery exterior and also the delicate lace-like skeleton that remains to gently cradle the fruit when it has worn away. When these appear at The Met I remember that they also must be at the flower shops - and that is a stop I make soon afterward.
