Flower or weed? That is the question. I don't know the answer to be quite honest with you, but it's pretty so I'm keeping it in my garden. I have a sneaky suspicion that it might be a weed though. Does anyone know?
It seems that snakes like the plant, whatever it is. Because we have found a baby snake by this plant twice in the same week. Did I mention I am deathly afraid of snakes? (Just ask my daughter ... ahem ...)
Meanwhile summer stretches on as does the heat and the Midwest storms. Because of all the standing water the Midwest is suddenly plagued with millions and billions of mosquitoes which have recently hatched. Does anyone know the lifespan of a mosquito? I hope it is short. Because these buggers are nasty, biting ones. The hubster got bit by one right between his eyebrows and it has turned into a huge red bump and looks like someone smacked him in the face with a brick. I swear I didn't. Okay, maybe I did. (just kidding)
