Startling to be sure but a quick check with Google educated me on the roles of the male and female flowers and assured me everthing is fine. The male flower spends only one morning in full bloom and always falls off so no worries. One squash plant sends out both male and female flowers but the female flower needs the pollen from the male flower. Amazing bees! Still, I’m worried that I won’t get any squash this year.
Once I snapped these pics I wondered why I had never noticed squash in bloom before. They are surprisingly beautiful.
An interesting point of departure for a new round of sewing! How about an outfit or two based on yellow, turquoise, green and white? A cute jacket with drawstring waist and white pants? Or a bright yellow jacket? A few green tops. Endless inspiration here.
I was also inspired to update the old blog design since I love the texture of the flower. It was time to freshen up the place… because every rose has it’s thorns!
One pic of my lovely garden and then off to sew for a bit before the night gets away from me.
I love watching everything grow.
