Spreading yourself everywhere

You know you’re a Star!



I found this unusual yellow star flower growing by my air plant. On closer inspection, I realised it was growing like a creeper out of a pot on the stoep.

What is it? It’s a gem squash plant. My husband took a seed from a gem squash he’d eaten, stuck it in a pot and voila!

      Thank you πŸ™‚ This is one of the oddest flowers I’ve seen, but I don’t see squash flowers in general.
      And yes, there is something so cheerful about pretty, coloured flowers. πŸ™‚
