Pumpkin Flower
After this plant is pollinated,
 the flower will protect the
      developing seed.

 Seeds grow within the walls
of this flower. And sometimes

On average, one bee will travel
to over 1,000 flowers each day!!!
Many plants would not be able to make seeds
   unless bees pollinated their flowers.




                        Bees pollinate many
                      crops that give us food!
As soon as the flower is pollinated,
      a fruit begins to form.
The petals will die as the fruit develops.
          Remember
   James and the Giant Peach

The fruit will grow larger
    and form seeds.
