Flowers in the Garden ~ Cucurbits

Because I’m a gardening geek, I thought I’d compare flowers in my garden based on plant family and note the similarities. Yesterday, I shared pictures of my garden flowers in the Nightshade family. (If you missed it, click here.) As similar as they were, there are even more similarities in the flowers of the Cucurbit family. Cucurbit flowers!

Spring Flowers

It’s the end of April, and we’ve had several gully-washer rain storms in the past two weeks. It makes me think of that old phrase, “April showers bring May flowers.” Because spring fever is now rampant in every hardiness zone, I thought the first post of May should be pictures of spring flowers. Some pictures were taken last year – like the eggplant flower in the picture above. Other pictures show what’s blooming in my garden now. Come enjoy!
