The Luffas are a-coming …

Sometimes spelt Loofah and most famous as Body Scrubbing Sponge ~ I spell it as Luffa  (广东丝瓜) and I grow it basically for some winter food.  My earlier post Yes, I Eat Luffa, shows what this vine is capable of.

But this morning, looking at the flowers, I thought I’d share its beauty and how my gardening assistants love them too.

Many a time when we buy our food from the supermarket or even farmers’ market, we just take it for granted that food is grown for soil.  However when one actually grows food naturally, one gets to appreciate their beauty in the process of their formation. Mother Nature does create Wonders.
