Sunday stills, Macro Monday....

Bird House gourds have such a pretty dainty blossom. They are only blooming for one day and usually at night and early in the morning.
Then they turn into these. Ity bity gourd, probably only two inches long.

One of my three trellis's that the gourds are growing on, I loved the glass detail when I bought them.



Miniature pumpkins are coming on to, this plant ant the Bird House gourd plant are going nuts right now!



This isnt quite macro, but I liked it anyway, another blossom with the gnome. It shows how delicate they are, and they are big four to five inches across some of them.

  6. Love the gourd flower shots. Must be pollinated by moths or bats to be open for business during those hours!

  7. makes me wish spring was here again so I could plant some...love our trellis. I'd like to make a bird house from one of the gourds...My friend has one...her daughter made it, but it's so pretty she keeps it on a bookshelf..afraid to leave it out in the weather.
