I guess I was unclear about the best of show voting. I see some categories are missing, like fruits and vegetables. Maybe I missed it though. Shrug!

I believe the white flower with all the frills was in the fruits and vegetables category.

Hmm..now I'm going to have to make room for gourds. I wonder if they're a host plant for any kind of caterpillar? Rolling on the floor laughing Seriously, that is a gorgeous photo. I do remember making it one of my three in the initial round of voting. Thumbs up

I wondered what that one was! Really striking photo! Hope someone will tell just which gourd produced that gorgeous bloom. Smiling

Cross posted, dirt! I must try that one! It looks like a trellis system will be useful.

I have Chinese Cucumber (Trichosanthes kirilowii) with a similar flower. I'm sure it's a common attribute of the genus.

So is this an edible fruit? Not that I really care, but it's not clear if all species of Trichosanthes are edible.

Apparently it is.
I've been checking it out a bit and have read that people do eat the shoots, leaves, and immature fruit, but only the pulp of the mature fruit.

I want to know how large the blooms are.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

@dirtdorphins Tee hee hee, so is that "Eats shoots and leaves" or "Eats, shoots and leaves?" Hilarious! (Don't mind me, I think I'm in a comma just now.)

is that a coma or a comma you're in?

I want to know if the photographer credited for the image on Flickr and Pinterest entered it into the ATP photo contest.

Glad to see my question enlightened so many people, and helped them discover a fun new plant to try with so many pleasing attributes!

FYI, The photo of the snake gourd blossom has already been disqualified from the contest. You can vote for another photo, now, if you already voted for that photo.

Oh dear,
yes--there are many--here is one from tumblr

It is very unfortunate that this travesty was not discovered before the initial category voting began, but, better late than way too late!

Let's move on!
