CALABASHThis word is quite familiar to me but I really didn't know what it was, then when I found out, I realized I had a great photo of a really beautiful looking CALABASH
Isn't it gorgeous? Standing about waist height, this calabash can be seen in the foyer of Gaylord's Plantation Restaurant, near Lihue on Kauai.
A calabash is a gourd, and they come in many different sizes -- not usually as big as this. They are used for storage of many different things. Smaller one are usually used for holding water.
This one, as large as it is and highly polished as you can see, is truly a work of art. So glad I thought of it for our letter C.
C is also for COYOTE and since I have mentioned them frequently as inhabiting our area, I offer the only proof I have: two very inferior photos, But there he is, just across the creek from our house. I took these one evening when it was almost dark.
Do you think he saw me??
