How kind and what a lovely shot it makes Bill.

Lovely color and the light is just perfect in this capture.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frances. I never knew courgettes had such a big showy flower
It's beautiful in this light Bill... i like the way its shadow covers most of the leaf beside it....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Perer. I planted them in my front garden and they seem to like it!

A fine shot. Give it plenty of water mixed with a dose of Lightroom
Bill Phillips: I have to water them about 3 times a day!
Oh this is lovely Bill, have you got any more of this plant. You have out done yourself with this.In fact I can't stop looking at it.
Bill Phillips: You are a very silly person Mick. Get back to processing pictures of knackered old rockers
I was being nice, but no more.
Bill Phillips: You are that rarest of people who can make being nice read like taking the p***
This reminds me of a zucchini flower, Bill, which is simply delicious to eat when dipped in a batter and deep fried. I wonder if this beauty is edible as well.
Bill Phillips: Courgette is what we call a zucchini Beverly
Beautiful Bill. I was going to say you can eat them too
Bill Phillips: I am hoping we get some courgettes Janet

Very beautiful colour and good contrast with the leaves, too. Is a courgette anything like a bacon buttie? wink
Bill Phillips: Sadly no or I would have been growing them for years
If the Courgettes turn out like the flowers then you are in for a treat later this summer.
Bill Phillips: I am hoping Brian

Great shot Bill, the flower is so vibrant
Bill Phillips: I had no idea they had flowers like this Anne
I was going to say it looks like Zucchini- Beverly beat me to it! They do have beautiful flowers. I love the light on this. Mick is a very silly person! smile
