Every time I step outside I find that this lovely plant is growing more and more fruits. It's from some gourd seeds that I started a lot late in the season and only about 5 of the 20 seeds I planted came up. No problem really, the five plants are taking up a heck of a lot of space and the fruits are probably going to weigh down our make shift fence. The gourds on it already are growing at a rapidly fast pace! Everyday you can see that it has grown....kind of like a child....that fast.The flowers are just beautiful to watch. They open up in the early early morning and by mid-afternoon they have closed up for the day.
This here is one of the gourds that sit right outside our window. The one that is most paid attention to.
And I can't leave without showing a picture of our new addition.
Oscar came to me after holding Sally for a while and asked if I had anything to hold her in so that she wouldn't be so heavy. I opened the closet door and out he came with his old sling. Notice we had to twist around his shoulder. He as well as she enjoyed the slinging!
until next time.....ans
