Late Summer Blooms

Do you know what plant produces this beautiful flower?  I have been trying all summer to get a picture, the bloom only opens for a day or two and then drops off.  I would have never guessed that this plant would produce such a pretty flower... okra!  You know that slimy fuzzy vegetable that we have more than we know what to do with.  Nature is so impressive!

The pumpkins have sprouted.  I am so excited that they are growing and doing well, I was a bit worried that they would not come up.  I am exceeding doubtful they will produce pumpkins by Halloween but I do not care.  I am thrilled to watch the little plants grow.
