Gourds and orchids......slow day


When I first looked into this basket, I thought they had been painted by artists. When I looked closer they were really gourds of many varieties, of some I have never seen before then.




This is a photo a day picture but I wanted to place over here. I like the look of all the background leaves and the small little flowers are orchids.
 
Have a great Saturday.  I will be shoveling snow again but I won't be taking any pictures. Thanks for stopping by.......

Great photos and a nice contrast of colors with those gourds. I hope you don't have to work too hard shoveling today.

What a great blog! When were you in Riverton? I hope to get back there sometime this year. The Southwest Iowa landscapes are so beautiful in fall. Love your photography.

I was a young very inexperience art teacher in Sidney, Iowa from 1972 to 1976. I got to learn about Neb. Cornhuskers, the Sidney Rodeo, and all of the area up and down the Missouri River. I have since put int 31 years at the Woodward-Granger Schools here in Woodward. I lived in the top floor of the old Victorian house next to the funeral home.
