I grew all of these gourds in our garden a year ago and decided to do a series of Missouri Native Wildflower paintings on them.
Native plants are a crucial part of a healthy ecosystem- they conserve water, maintain biodiversity and provide food and shelter for our wildlife and pollinators.
My hope is that if you purchase a gourd from this series, that you will learn more about these special plants and use your gourd as a conversation piece to share with others the importance of our native plants, trees and wildflowers.
There were seven in the series, they are one of a kind, I won’t be doing duplicates of them. The Black-Eyed Susan sold before I could put it on the Etsy shop. If you’re interested in purchasing one before they’re gone, you can get yours here.
