The Last Hurrah!

Perhaps it was the warmth of the Santa Ana winds we had a few weeks ago, but besides the gardenia and hydrangea, the zucchini is trying to create one last squash. When I saw the blossom open this morning, I decided to help pollinate. I found a male blossom which was also blooming and dusted the pollen inside. In a day or two, I will be able to tell if my job as "busy bee" was successful. Don't be confused by the yellow color...this is a zucchini plant which produces yellow squash.
