Red Car Property: Buzzin The Calabazilla

Photo: Diane Edwardson, June 1, 2015.  It's hard for bees to resist the big bright flowers of the native gourd with the goofy name, Calabazilla (Curcurbita foetidissima), now blooming on the Red Car Property, just north of Rose Scharlin Co-op Preschool.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)
