Really Big Squash Blossoms

Vertical photos don’t fit very neatly into a blog post, but I like these squash blossoms so much, I’m going to go ahead and post them anyway. These are blossoms from the ‘White Cushaw’ winter squash. They’re astonishingly large compared to the summer squash blossoms I’ve been seeing this summer:These flowers are almost as large as the squash leaves. (You can get the best sense of scale in the last photo.)
