Mystery plant revealed - new challenge is mystery bird
I came home from a weekend away to find the goofy mystery plant had blossomed and revealed itself as a red poppy. My mother said she laid seeds a year or two ago for them, so it must have been mixed in with the bok choy, carrots, and lettuce seeds she gave me. So beautiful. Makes me consider reserving some space in the beds for flowers - before now I've only planted vegetables.What a pleasant surprise! And I'm glad something in my intuition said not to pick it when I got rid of other weeds.
