Finished up another painted gourd. This one just in time for Halloween. She/he came off friendlier than I anticipated, but someone said she looks total evil, ready to eat you. I believe my sister Juli grew this gourd in her garden. I have some I have planted but I’m too far north for them to ripen reliably. Right now the fruits are just beginning to develop.

This summer has been devoted to getting many things on the ‘list’ completed. I’ve had this gourd for a bird house and was going to paint it as a bird, but couldn’t figure out what bird. It sat for a long time before the below image popped into my mind. Then it sat waiting for me to actually do the painting. I did it this week, then I had to find a place to put it. When hung from fishline it twirls around and no bird would inhabit it. I’m not sure if they would now, either, but being tied to a chain seems to hold it in place. cat birdhouse cat2

Missed Christmas with the family because of my flu-cold, whatever it was. So I’m about to stick things in the mail. Here are the painted gourd-birdhouses ‘Moonflowers and Luna’.
