Gourds At My Door
Photograph - Fine Art Digital Prints - Photography
I love Fall and all of the beautiful decorations of the homes in my neighborhood! This year I got a few lovely gourds from our visit to the Pumpkin Patch and just set them out next to my front door. Mother Nature is such a talented artist!
I am no expert on gourds, but I am a big fan of the color and tremendous variety of this wonderful fruit that serves as such a symbol of Fall and harvest time. I cannot tell you which is which, but I found this listing of the different names of gourds, as diverse as their appearance!
An assortment of gourds: 1. Teasel Gourd (Cucumis dipsaceus);
2. Ornamental Gourds (Cucurbita pepo);
3. Summer Crookneck (Cucurbita pepo);
4. Wild Cucumber (Marah macrocarpus);
5. Horned Cucumber (Cucumis metuliferus);
6. Coyote Melon (Cucurbita foetidissima);
7. Vegetable Sponge (Luffa acutangula); and
8. White Bush Scallop (Cucurbita pepo).
Thank you so much for looking at my images. I appreciate that very much.
I am very concerned with our environment and have decided to donate any money I make from any sales of this image to the ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND.....because the Earth needs a good lawyer! We all need to speak up and support efforts to protect our environment. We will not get a second chance!
