Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

My Wednesday Vignette this week is a photo I took a few weeks ago during Peter The Outlaw Gardener's Open Garden. I had never seen this particular Bromeliad before and when I saw it I did ask him, "Is it supposed to look like that?"

Apparently, yes, it is.

If any plant could ever be said to be perfectly suited to its container, it's this one.

Such a strange, weird, stubby Bromeliad

  1. Indeed a strange Bromelia, it looks like it still has to start growing....

  2. Trust Peter to have the perfect pot to put his plant in. And yes, all that alliteration is in Peter's honor.

  3. I bet it'll produce a spectacular flower one day!

  4. OMG - that is the PERFECT container for that plant. And I agree - what an oddball Bromeliad. Wonder how big it gets...?

  5. Leave it to Peter to make weird look so good!


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
