surprise orchid

Making a New Friend

Sigyn is having a good week–a concert, a gloriously decadent breakfast, a roll in the bluets, and now this.

Mystery plant!  She’s discovered something blooming in the front yard and doesn’t know what it is.  It is multiple Sigyns tall and has white flowers that spiral up the stem.

The human female says it’s a little weedy orchid.  It’s been in Texas about twenty years.  It  often comes over from Asia in bagged mulch.   Well, she did mulch last fall, so I suppose that’s where it came from.

And a nice reminder of getting smacked between the eyes with the mulch cart handle.
