The Odd and Unusual

If you wish to see the odd and unusual --I'm speaking of the plants, of course-- you really ought to try going to a botanical garden, especially one with a year-round greenhouse or conservatory.



We've seen some weird stuff growing at Longwood Botanical Gardens. This is just one of them.

These flowering towers stand more than a Glory tall and are about 6-10 inches wide at the base.


The cones consist of zillions of tiny flowers which on their own would be insignificant, but display them like this and they are stunning.Always like to see the odd and unusual.

  1. LOL, no! But perhaps they are related. They are from Madagascar or something, so I have no idea.
