Courgette by Another Name

Monday  is Today's Flowers.

and My Little  MellowYellowBadge
 Zucchini Flower

Zucchini or courgette is a small summer squash belonging to the species Cucurbita pepo with colours varying from green, light green and yellow.
The female flower is a golden blossom on the end of each emergent zucchini. The male flower grows directly on the stem of the zucchini plant in the leaf axils (where leaf petiole meets stem), on a long stalk, and is slightly smaller than the female. Both flowers are edible, and are often used to dress a meal or garnish the cooked fruit. ~ Wikipedia< blockquote>

The deep rich yellow against the green fuzzy leaves....outstanding composition.

DAPPLED SUNLIGHT on Plumbago Blossom I'd love to have you visit with me today if you can.

Beautiful pictures! They take me right back to the first few years of our marriage when we grew all our own vegetables - except peppers and mushrooms!

I don't have the option of a pop-up comment box on my Wordpress blog, but I can't see a reason it wouldn't work for you...?

Love the yellow!

Beautiful shots of the zucchini flower, and the tiny squash. The bloom has an almost exotic feel to it.

I like the Pop up window too for comments, it seems to work far better than the embedded ones.
