Shattered Illusions: FOTD, Dec 30, 2021

In 35 years of growing bougainvillea, I have never seen the central flower bloomed out like this!

Here is how they usually look:

But, oops. I suddenly had a brainstorm and went outside to check again, and guess what? When I moved the bougainvillea branch aside, this is what I discovered:

That bloom was actually the bloom of this tiny succulent peeking through the bougainvillea. Another of life’s illusions shattered!


For Cee’s FOTD

    Hah! I wondered when I saw the first shot if there might be some collusion between the two plants! But it really did look like the flower belonged to the bougainvillea! What a pretty flower the jade plant has!
