The Round Robin Photo Challenges: Fabulous Freaks Of Nature
This is my first attempt at the Round Robin Photo Challenge, and it is so nice meeting all these talented people who participate. Here's hoping I don't embarrass myself too badly.
The subject this time, proposed by Meg at In Quest Of, is "Fabulous Freaks of Nature".
This is a cutting that arrived in a florist bouquet over a year ago. The reason I kept it is that it has these flowers, or fruiting bodies, or whatever they are on the undersides of the bottom two leaves. It's been in a little bottle of water all that time. It never grows roots, it hasn't rotted, and no other leaves on it ever do this. It is, however, beginning to turn a bit yellow, and may be at the end of its strange little life.
I have been unable to find out what it is, and I've been unable to bring myself to toss it until I do. If anyone out there can identify it, please do?
Thanks, Carly, for inviting me to play!
