Geometry lesson in nature:

First a peek:Peek of pumpkin flower

Finally, nature’s geometric shape in the making:

nature's geometric shape

The beautiful pumpkin blossom radiates the star polygon geometric shape for all to see.

Gee whiz…who wishes  high school geometry class was this easy??

Hey vegetable  lovers…are pumpkin blossoms edible?

This Weekly Photo Challenge asked we share a photo that means GEOMETRY to you!.

“Geometry. This challenge is about the shapes and rhythms that make up the geometry of our world. Many photographs of any genre have an underlying sense of geometry, but I often like to make this the main subject of my work. I think it’s the most important aspect of a photograph’s success. This could be the patterns of the natural world up close and personal, or the rhythm of your local buildings.” 


Okay, math class dismissed. But do check below some fantastic entries to this week’s GEOMETRY challenge! Enjoy!

  1. Wow, I didn’t even know pumpkins HAD blossoms! You always strive to educate the blog masses, Sunshine–good on you!! God bless you this weekend–love, sis Caddo

      • Eat the blossoms? Huh, there’s just no end to pumpkin possibilities! Happy Sunday to you, as well–the time change means I’m getting more church today; good thing, because I’m cranky about my “electronic clock” that you can’t set, it’s automatic–so last month, sometime, it “reset itself” thinking we should have changed times then–(not this weekend). And to “correct” it, I hit the “daylight savings time” button–so it was fixed until this weekend; but now it’s not buying it, when I keep trying to hit that button again. So I just unplugged the dang thing and stomped around for awhile…Arrgghh

      • Oh, no, sis, I think your electronic clock may be in for a permanent vacation–heave ho to the trash can. haha…just kidding. Maybe once you unplug it and re-plug it will reset automatically?

      • Tried that–No-Go, it’s like stubborn to the max, maybe it’s taken on the owner’s personality?! Guess I’ll just have to wait till spring, when it matches our next time change–sheesh!!

  2. hey! thts beautiful and yes! pumpkin blossoms are edible..usually plucked and washed and sipped in batter of gramflour with few spices,and deep fried..they form a crispy pakora(indian name for crispies) dish ..

    • All this time the big orange pumpkins have stolen the show from these beauties! Soumyav says we can eat these blossoms too, Angelswhisper. Cool, huh?

    • A starry night sounds like a vast geometry lesson waiting to happen, Island T.! I think your son is calling you for the lesson! *laughing* Thank you so much!! :)

  4. Nature offers some of the best in geometry… lovely. ;-)
    Thank you for checking in during the Hurricane… your kind wishes were appreciated!

    • I am once again behind things so it is my turn to tell you, Elizabeth, I need to visit you soon!!!
      Thanks for stopping in on the geometry lesson…haha. :)

      • Girl, I hear you… At this current rate, I might never catch up myself.. and I haven’t been blogging since Friday. That storm scare beat the crap out of me on a deep level. Hmmm… What a revelation I just got writing this. TY Sunshine for playing long distance therapist. ;-)

    • Here we go, Arindam, do some people ever call you Ari for short? I know random…so here is to another new week of fun and adventures on planet earth!! yay!

      • Hmm one of my friend your to call me “Ari”. But then I stopped him from calling me so, because “Ari” means Enemy. :) So now instead of Ari, few people call me Arin.
        By the way I have never ever came across a person how could find “Random” in my name. Good one, Sunshine. :) Have a great week too!

      • Well, yes, I can see why Ari would not suit you at all…Arin is much better. :)
        I did not mean no harm when I mentioned “random”–just wanted you to know my apologies for changing into a totally different subject: The abbreviation version of your name. :)
        Now, you have a great week too!

    • It was hard not to notice the pumpkin blossoms…they were so yellow and large! Little did I know there was a geometric shape waiting to shine forth…sneaky thing! :)
