Not just another flower, but an edible one, at least the ants like it! When I first posted this or a similar one on Facebook a month or so ago, I was certain it was a Cantaloupe blossom. I bury all my vegetable and fruit scraps in my garden for the worms to convert into compost (dirt is more like it). I had forgotten about burying the skin and seeds of a Hubbard Squash...perhaps because I rarely eat Hubbard Squash. I purchased the 'big ole' squash at the grocery and it sat on the back of the kitchen counter for months before I got around to preparing it. The "Hubbard" variety is referred to as a "winter squash" , possibly because it will "keep" all winter in a cellar, or in my case--the back corner of the kitchen counter. I've kinda gone off on one of my tangents here, but back to the blossom. It's pretty and photographs well, from my point of view of course! I learned that it was not a cantaloupe blossom when the vine started putting on little squash.
