gourd

I spotted this gourd vine, creeping across the hard and dry ground the other day. As far as I know, gourd vines do not find drought-summers to be too hot or too dry to flourish. Maybe we ought to shift our thinking and decide they would make lovely landscaping plants, instead of the always-need-water sorts of plants that we tend to believe we have to have in our yards.
