I had to look up Levelland, sounded flat:-) You are way up there! I'm in Franklin which is about 25 miles from Bryan/College Station or Aggieland. Moved up here last year from Magnolia which is close to Houston. I have just gotten a bunch of gourds planted and we planted a couple of long leaf pines trees here several years ago....I'm taking steps to be a gourd farmer and have pine needles for coiling. I love the way everyone has their own look and feel in their gourd art.
