Yellow squash flower

For Mellow Yellow Monday I'm giving you this squash flower.  These are the most gorgeous flowers and they just keep coming.  I've been cooking with zucchini for weeks now and they're still coming on strong.  I love the look of these flowers and perhaps this year will be the time to deep fry them and try the taste.  Have you ever had them?  Imagine eating such a large flower!

And how about this one holding about half a cup of water inside the bloom?  For more yellow images go here.  There are mellow yellow photos from all over the world.


  1. I have had squash flowers in a salad at a fancy restaurant once and they were quite delicious.

  2. I've tried them, also in a salad. It was interesting.

  3. I've always wondered what they would taste like. Our zucchini weren't as prolific this year so eating the blossoms wasn't much of an option.
    They are spectacularly beautiful, though.

  4. I watched a chef prepare flowers like that the other day. It looked good.

    You first.


I really appreciate your comments.
