You remember don’t you?
Tamara (http://thegreenhousediaries.blogspot.com/) and the Big Guy were out for a seminar and left behind all the baby plants they used as props for their educational game.
I planted them up and babied them until late spring.
Two of these little guys along with some baby ivy were planted in a rusty metal planter, put under the apple tree and for the most part forgotten.
Oh, I watered them once in a while and picked the odd weed that sprouted, but mostly they went unnoticed.
Until a few weeks ago.
When I saw this. . .
Isn’t it pretty?
And the orangey colour fits right in with the fall nesting theme.
I love unexpected gifts.
