The Gourd Lady

We have the best neighbors at the garden show this year.  On one side is Owen’s Orchids, and on the other side is the famous Gourd Lady.  Her name is Margaret ‘Sparky’ Sparkman, and she is a legend.  She is in her 80s 90s and makes all her items out of gourds.  She’s been at these shows for years (every year she says it’s her last, but every year there she is again).  In her booth, she has a little tv playing the episode of Jay Leno she was on.  I love her 🙂
