Vined Fortune. FOTD, June 28, 2020


This vine has been growing on the outside of my wall for nineteen years and I still don’t know what it is. On a whim, I snapped this photo not noticing what a wonderful background the color of the car parked across the street made for the little surreal still life the flowering vine formed. It’s the first good shot I’ve had of this flower in all those years.

Mystery Flower, FOTD June 20, 2020


I just glanced at this flower growing in the pot where normally kalanchoe grow and went in to get my camera. It was only while I was transferring it into my photos that I realized those were definitely not kalanchoe leaves. I have no idea what it is or how it got there. Either I bought something I didn’t know the name of or it is a volunteer brought in by another plant. At any rate, it is thriving there and the kalanchoes all seem to be gone, so I will enjoy it as a mystery unless some kind soul tells me what it is. This entire bunch is about 2 1/4 inches across. Happy Solstice!
