This spring when I was getting ready to plant some new plants in my tubs, I noticed a few sprouts starting. I figured they sprouted from seeds from last years plants so I decided to let them grow….
It’s been wonderful. The big pretty purple wave petunias are the result…aren’t they beautiful!!
After I looked a bit closer, I saw this…
See that plant growing along the trellis? That’s not a purple hyacinth. It looks more like a squash to me. Hubby agreed so I dug it out and put in in the garden. If it makes it through transplanting, we’ll see what the mystery plant is.
I am guessing that a pumpkin was in there as a decoration last fall and seed ended up in the soil, then sprouted this spring. Time will tell.
Wht ever it is its pretty.
I have a feeling it’s a purple runner bean. They are about 6 ft. tall, beautiful purple flowers but I don’t think the beans are edible. Enjoy your mystery plant!
A few years ago we have a pumpkin come up in our “rocks” by the driveway. We live in the city so we figured it came “through” a bird! This year my daughter and I planted some cantaloupe seeds in the same spot to see what they do. So far, so good…they are up and dad hasn’t killed them with weed killer.
I forgot to metoinn that over 20 quilts were donated to Read Me A Quilt at the Tuesday meeting. A wonderful accomplishment! (The quilt pictures were too blurry to post.) Thank you to the quilters for bringing comfort to some fortunate boys and girls!
