This CARRION PLANT is fascinating. I planted a sample that I received as a gift from a parishioner. I had no idea what surprises lay in store when it would bloom! This small green cactus grew this pod and then it opened to a 14″ spread! Flies love the smell (like dead meat – not my favorite part). It is a succulent and blooms in the summer and fall.
This pod opened to a 16 inch diameter on my potted plant! October 21, 2016
This passion flower grows wild in the natural area of our back yard – an invasive vine with the most intricate blooms. The first time I saw its bloom, I gasped! Now I don’t want to pull up the vine. Must be God’s way of giving it a chance to survive and even thrive. Most “weeds” are beautiful, fascinating creative works of God just growing in the wrong place.
