“A Nice Surprise”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
When it comes to my garden, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. A new flower, especially one on a plant that has never bloomed before, really is something I look forward to seeing. While prowling around with my camera this past weekend, I suddenly spied a new flower.
This is the first time I am seeing this flower. It is on a ti plant that my mother gave me about two years ago, and this is the first flower it has ever produced. The stems as well as the tiny flowers are such a pretty shade of pink.
I was rather amazed to see this flowering at this time of year. While, we have not had any real cold weather, we have had several chilly days and nights, and I would have expected this plant to flower in the warm summer, not in mid-November. This certainly was a nice surprise.
