Falling in love with gourds.

Rapid City, SD(Zone 4b)

Ok everyone !! I planted my first crop of birdhouse gourds last year, left them to dry over the winter and I just finished (what a chore) cleaning,cutting the bird hole. Soon the fun starts in decorating it... !!
I am so hooked!! I love the way they have turned out allready and can think of many way to paint and decorate them.
What I would really like is some of those swan gourd seeds.. Can't find any here is SD. Would any of you have a couple you could seed to a sprouting gourder such as myself !!?? Or maybe point me in a good direction to purchase some. Not planting season here yet, hope to get things in the ground by 3rd week in May..

Please Help...
