On our way to 100 °
I'm still not sure what they are called. Anyone have an idea?
They have rather tall stalks with the clusters of purple trumpet flowers at the top. I found one yesterday that had clusters all the way up a very tall stalk. They seem to grow wild around here and I've only seen them one other place near us.
We have a little place not far from us out on the hwy that has plants and veggies. They set up a small stand with information, some plants and a money tube. There's lots of plants out in the driveway on benches that they've started. Boxes to put them in. Prices are on signs so you know what you owe. Then you just put your $ in the cash tube slot. Its all on the honor system. I love it. You just don't see that much any more. Anyway, she had some of these plants in little pots for sale but I never got to ask if they knew the name of them.
Even Emmy the chihuahua gets in on the act, running back and forth, hiding under the wood stove that's sitting nearby until she is noticed, then barking loudly at both dogs and Runnnnnnning as fast as her little legs will carry her. Usually into her mom's arms for safety.
Funny thing, if no dogs or cats are around and Bella wants to play the game, she will find one of them and bark a few times, run back under the stairs until they all are playing the game.
Drives me crazy!
I have found them all over in the yard (the 2-1/2 acre part), under leaves, in the driveway ... well you get the idea. But never found any plant starts in them, just unrolled tp rolls with possibly some starter soil in them. He must have had a real good time tossing them up in the air and trying to catch them before he ate them.
This is not a farm. It really is a zoo!
