Vegetable and Fruit Flowers

ANNOUNCEMENT! I am finishing up a big project, so I won't be able to blog as much as I have been. Plus, next week, I'm off on vacation with my sister to Ocean City, New Jersey. I will blog as much as I can because I enjoy doing this so much. But if I lag behind, you know the reason why! :-) But do come and visit often! I love knowing that people actually read what I have to say. LoL!

On to gardening business....

I must say that I am girlie-girl and I absolutely love flowers. Of all kinds, especially pink and other bright colors. Just walking around in my garden, I've noticed that my fruits and vegetables have the most delightful flowers. Not only are these flowers pretty to look at, they give me hope of delicious harvests! Most of them are yellow in color, and occasionally I will find a white flower.

Enjoy the beauty of my flowers. I love these because they are best of both worlds. Lovely to enjoy, and they are the sign of hope to come!

The watermelon flowers are numerous, and though the plant has wrecked havoc in terms of space, its flower reminds me of how simple life can be.



And finally, the male flowers on my cucumber plants....

Beautiful pics, have fun on your vacation and don't worry 'bout the melons, soon your going to be thinking about placing shingles under the melons so the bugs won't get to them!

Hi DP, good idea from Tina, food flowers count too for bloom day, and it's fun to participate, you will get so many visitors to your blog. Go to Carol at May Dreams Garden on the fifteenth of the month and leave a comment that you have your post up, and the readers will come! Hope you have a great trip. We used to go to Stone Harbor New Jersey when we lived in Pennsylvania, so fun.

Dawn- Thank you! OOO i can't wait until I have to place the shingles.

Tina--Oh, that's for letting me know. I'll definitely do that.

Frances- Thanks for the tidbit. I'll check it out! I' m excited about New Jersey. I've gone to Princeton before, and I remember NJ as a fun and very green place.

Gail-Thank you! I'll post pictures of my vacation when I return! I can't wait to see the fruits of my garden adventures as well! So exciting!
