Here's the female flowers of bur-cucumber. They grow separately from the staminate flowers, but on the same vine. They will form clusters of small prickly fruit about 3/4 inch long. They are said to be edible, but I hope to never be that hungry. Even grazing animals, except for some bugs, avoid them. Perhaps that's why they become weeds in agricultural areas. If they are growing in a pasture, and the cows won't eat them, they will soon take over. I've felt compelled to show this plant for a long time. Consider today a moment of weakness. But then, everything is beautiful . . .
