Pretty mold

Who knew that mold could be so pretty? That was my thought when I saw how my swan neck gourd dried. The pattern is a speckled brindle color. I don’t know yet what I will make of it but for right now I just had to photograph it! It’s been a bit of work to get it to this point. I had to fight and win against powdery mildew attacking my plants. Then I had to figure out the best time to cut and wait for them to dry.

    It’s a tribute to your craft that a moldy old gourd can look so good I want to eat it.

    Great textures and color. I’ll refrain from commenting on the shape. Lol

    Fine shot. I particularly like the colour, and the detail on the stem. Without the stem it wouldn’t be as good.

    Has a definite Old Masters feel to it with the lighting and shadows. Nicely done.
