There is a perennial vegetable plant in my garden which has an unusual flower; unusual to me, that is.
The first time I saw this flower was on this day in 2013.
I picked it and took a photo of it, as it reclined elegantly upon a favourite plate of mine.
Since 2013, the plant has continued to grow and flourish, and provide us with delicious nourishment. But not a single flower was produced until earlier this week, almost 5 years to the day from the first flowering. And this time, there was not one flower, but two. I was surprised to see them.
I picked them, arranged them in a vase with some foliage, and photographed them.
Now here is the question. Do you know to which plant these strange flowers belong?
Keen gardeners will know, I am sure, and they will also know the possible reasons for the plant’s flowering schedule.
But, if you are not a gardener, and/or are curious and eager to know the origin of these flowers, take a peek here .
Are you surprised by what you read in the linked post?
