Pumpkin flower

pumpkin flower

My mum says this is a pumpkin flower (that is, a flower of a pumpkin plant), but there will be no pumpkin if there is no male and female flower on the same vine. I think she said this was a female flower. We’ve yet to see a fruit, so I guess the male flower was a no-show.

Pretty, anyway! I love how cheerful it looks.

    i wonder if you can eat the flower 🙂 i’ve seen flower salads before, and if the flower ain’t gonna give forth fruit, maybe you can eat it anyway 😀

      We have lots of those bee-yoo-ti-ful flowers at Park Garden. The bees swarm around pollinating them. I wonder about eating them too. I’m going to look that up soon, because there are dozens of ’em.
