Squash blossoms

Every time I see these beautiful blossoms, before they become a crooknecked squash, or another kind, I think of the beautiful jewelry Native Americans make with this blossom as symbol.

Interestingly enough, the jewelry is in silver, with turquoise stones usually.  Beautiful, but not yellow.  Did they know something I don't? Well, of course.

Submitting this for Sunday Summertime, 3rd Sunday of the month to remember blossoms of August.

  1. Apparently squash blossoms are edible although I have never had them.


Looking forward to hearing from you!
