Gourds Gone Crazy

While visiting one of my customers, Mini Earth Greenhouse http://www.miniearthgreenhouses.com, this week I was floored by his display of highly unusual gourds. I never knew there were so many kinds. I knew there were some that grew unusually large, but the shapes and color variations that these things come in was amazing. Here I have a few pictures of his displays. See if you can tell which is the Swan Gourd (it shouldn't be that hard). Would you believe there is actually a national gourd society http://americangourdsociety.org and an Illinois gourd society http://americangourdsociety.org/ILGS. Phew... I resisted doing a gourd joke, it was hard but I did it.
