We often forget that veggies have flowers too!!
Many are edible. The flowers of the pumpkin (squash)is used in many recipes.
Pumpkin Flower Soup (Sopa de Flor de Calabaza)
is very delicious.
Great pictures!!
- Cheers.

Vegies have fabulous blooms and it was great to see them featured in your photos. Love the Impatiens at the end ... it does look like a rose!

Laerte Pupo said...

I liked the flower of the eggplant.
Thank you for participating in the TF.

Autumn Belle said...

That balsam sure looks like a pretty rose. The vege flowers are sweet too.

Thank you Wong for the compliment!

Thank you, this is my first pumpkin flower. Would love to learn about that delicious Pumpkin Flower Soup Gisela.

Thanks Bernie, Ive features most of my flowers previously, so time to feature the vegetable blooms as they have their own attractions too!

Thank you for hosting it Pupo!

Your balsam sure looks like a rose. Did you get a new camera recently? I notice your macros in the last few posts are sharper than before.

Carver said...

I love the flowers on vegetables. They serve a dual purpose. All these flowers are lovely.

chubskulit said...

Gorgeous!

My flowers, have a lovely Sunday!

p3chandan said...

Autumn Belle..yes it does, the colour and the petals only no sweet fragrance.

Diana, labu kuning biasa je..the first flower of my pumpkin patch!

One..you have sharp eyes! Yes my old camera was stolen, so I bought the cheapest Canon I could find but better.Anyway the old one was a bit damaged when it fell in Turkey while on vacation there.

Thank you Carver..they have their own attractions!

Thank you Chubskulit, you too have a good week ahead!

Masha said...

It is really embarrassing to admit, but you fooled me with that red balsam!! Beautiful pictures as always.

I love your plant names...my favorite is Miss Prim Bean; It does look very prim! It is so much fun to see the first flower of our veggies. Thanks for sharing.

rainfield61 said...

Wow!!! You got a new camera.

The first flower is the one I am seeing nowadays in my garden.

milka said...

Hehe you bought new camera for your flowers? Nice shots. The balsam flower look like a rose indeed, very sweet. My pumpkin has little buds like yours too (at your previous post), are they flower buds?

HolleyGarden said...

What a great post! Love those veggie blooms!

Malar said...

You have pretty flowers! Hope you can haev big pumpkin to harvest soon!
I never have luck with pumpkin!

Food so delicious! said...

What great lovely pictures of the flowers in your garden... Absolutely stunning!!

p3chandan said...

Hehehe..fooled you there Masha, yes it does look like a rose with that colour and the rosette in the centre.

Thats why I named it Miss Prim cos it looks so neat and tidy looking very prim and proper Egretta..just for fun!

Yes Rainfield, well not so new la..more than a month. You are also growing pumpkin in your garden? I want to see your garden la..make a post of it, so secretive about your garden la Rainfield!

Have to lor Milka, it was stolen..my own carelessness but a blessing in disguise, now the photos are much better! Finally a day after my post on the pink balsam, the red one bloomed, I told Malar maybe the seeds are all mixed together but I love them all. Yes Milka the buds are the female flower buds.

Thank you Holley.

Malar thanks, hope so...cos now they are so many flowers, male and female ones! Try again Malar dont give up, actually pumpkin are so easy to grow.

Thank you Food.

shaz said...

So pretty! I really thought the balsam was a rose. I must plant pumpkin again, the flowers are so striking. And I love the prim bean flower :)

milka said...

Izzit? Sorry too bz was not following your story. If the camera is not stolen the new one never comes. This has a better quality :)

Vinni said...

I liked the pumpkin flower, I have a small garden too, this will inspire me to put up a small post on them.

Thanks for sharing

We tend to forget that vegetables have pretty flowers too and your post today remind us that this is indeed the case. I was also very interested to see your post on Cat's Whiskers- I have never heard of this flower before.

kitchen flavours said...

Beautiful photos! Now why is the flowers of melons like pumpkins, cucumbers, bitter gourd are yellow and the beans are always purple? Hmm...
Very soon you will be taking photos of the melons and beans!

Lrong said...

The pumpkin flower always looks pretty...

VW said...

The Balsam is beautiful! Probably especially so since I've never seen it before. Nice photos of the veggie garden flowers, too.

Chandramouli S said...

I love pumpkin blooms - they look lovely. That a balsam! Wow!!!!

lifeshighway said...

The balsam is so beautiful but my heart belongs to the pea.

p3chandan said...

Thank you Shaz,at one glance the red balsam do resembles the rose but of course no sweet fragrance. Im fascinated by the flowers of the vegetables cos they also have their own attractions.

As I said ealier Milka, its a blessing in disguise, although the camera was stolen but in replacement, I got a much better one and a lesser cost too!

Vinni, I love it because its bright, big and beautiful. Looking forward for your post on it!

Jennifer, how true...we tend to overlook the beauty and the attractions of their flowers which attract lots of insects and pests to our garden in the first place! Thats so good about joining Blotanical, you can see and learn about new plants from all over the world!

Joy, to think of it, you are right...they are all yellow! No melon yet..bean (long bean) is up there Ms Prim Bean!

Yes Mr Lrong, they do look so bright and sunny!

Thanks VW, the balsam is actually Impatiens balsamina and mine is double layer.

Yes Chandramouli...love their bright yellow blooms too and the balsam is a double layer given by another blogger Malar.

Cheri..you like the sweet Miss Prim Bean...
