winding, unwinding

Do my gourd flowers bore you out of your gourd? The buds unfurling are choreography to me - twist, point, flare, flair! (stuff, broil....) The meandering spirals of tendrils that support the plant by weaving themselves around the neighboring plants have me wrapped around their fingers. Now if only it would produce a gourd - so far I see no sign of any developing fruits even after the flowers fall off. I suppose I'll have to make a maraca out of a tin can.
