Greetings from The Gourd Tunnel

One of the fun things we had growing at the arboretum this summer. Just make a framework of bamboo poles, plant some assorted gourd seeds along the bottom, add water, and let the fun begin. Oh, and watch your head as you go through!

My favorite thing in the tunnel was not a gourd, but the frilly little flower of one of the gourd varieties. That's the gourd, looking like an oversized stringbean, and the little white flower is next to it.

Lookit all the crazy little CurlyMcCues on that thing.

Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
