Flower

Look what greeted me when I came home from work! One of my gourd vines has 4 blossoms on it! 3 female + 1 male (the female flowers have a bulb which the gourd will grow from). I'm so excited! I wonder when the gourds will start forming. I was too impatient to wait for a bee to do its thing...so I took a a piece of cotton and dabbed the male flower and then a female flower...I wonder if it worked? I wish my other vines were ready...I wanted to try crossing the typs of gourds to see what would happen. I hope the picture sticks around this time...
