Summer Pumpkins (Tendrils, Flowers, Bees)

It has been amazing watching the development of pumpkin plants - they unfold with a multitude of purposes with reaching tendrils like hands, huge canopy leaves, centralized male flowers, and long reaching vines with female flowers and little pumpkin orbs. Today the opening of those flowers drove the bees mad - and I couldn't resist taking some photos:

Aside from the pumpkins, the garden has been full of life and color... and here are just a few of those other sights:

Happy Summer everyone from the garden and the wildlife at Ichabod's Cottage!


  1. Beautiful pictures!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you Lee, glad you liked them! I can't say I'm a very good gardener, so this year has been a pleasant surprise, and great fun to watch things grow. The forms are inspiring, though I don't think the foxes appreciated the disturbance.
