Wonderful. I would never have known that was a cucumber plant.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Wow, what gorgeous, crisp macros! Are the cucumbers edible ones?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

How absolutely wonderful. Edible sculpture! (I know the curlicues aren't the part you eat, but close enough.) I have never seen such graceful beauty on a utilitarian garden plant.
