A Bit Of An Oddity

I love when things aren’t they way they are expected to be. As long as I can remember I’ve found things that are surprising or odd to be fascinating. The Husband planted a package of assorted color 4 O’Clocks that has been hanging around in May and they are finally blooming now. Among the pink, white, yellow and coral there is a plant that is half and half. It’s so unexpected. I’m hoping to gather the seeds separately from the others and see if we can grow these again next year.

As an update, there are still no flowers on the Morning Glory by the front steps but the volunteer in the backyard has bloomed again. This is a very odd growing season for us.

    What a crazy harlequin flower! Most of my flowers did horribly this summer. Usually my back deck is overflowing with flowers, this year I have leggy, scraggly buggy leftovers that will need to be tossed soon. Don’t know what happened, it’s just a 2020 year!

    Oh that is cool to have two colours. It seems so weird to me to hear someone hoping for Morning Glory blooms. It is considered a weed here as it grows out of control.
