They are so simple to grow - yet so beautiful at the same time. Gourds are one of my very-very favorite fall things. Stripes and solids in an array of colors - many shades of the season - even some "warty" ones - all unique and interesting on their own.
My lil' green birdcage display - filled with some of my favorites. Fill up a bowl with gourds for a beautiful fall arrangement - add in some baby ears of Indian corn, some twigs of bittersweet and there you have it - a GOURDeous centerpiece.
Everybody have a great Friday! This weekend I'll be going to my friend Frannie's to meet with farmgirls from all over the United States. We are visiting a sheep farm, making a "gourd" garland, learning to make dolls - oh - I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. I'll be sure and tell ya all about it next week.
Blessings to you all!
