Not a murder mystery, silly. A plant mystery–my favorite kind. I passed by this plant, see, that had these big leaves, see (James Cagney voice. Anybody know who that is?) and thought silently to myself, see, that I didn’t recognize those leaves, see?
You have to remember (back to my own self now) that flood waters deposit all sorts of strange seeds and plants from other places. Remember Bayou Fabio’s story about the sunflowers?
Today, I noticed a flower under one of those big leaves. Rather than look it up and act like I’m Miss Know-it-all Botanist, I’d rather let you, the Know-it-all Readership, tell me what it is.
Now, if you go look it up to find out, then you must confess, see, or I’ll give it to you like you gave it to my brother, you dirty rat!
Sorry, I’m back. As I was saying before Jimmy took over. Please tell us where you found it online so we can all look it up and educate ourselves to the enth degree on this little transient.
Termite guessed it’s a watermelon plant. What’s your guess?
I want you to know that I had a great scientific breakthrough today. The blind mosquitoes and biting gnats are WORSE with the full moon. Because today, Termite and I shoveled and hauled 8 more loads of dirt out of the side yard and we only got bit a couple times and the midges have all but vanished. The decline in these creatures is amazing. Thank goodness! I did not want to douse myself in Deepwoods Off!
Waiting for your brilliant answers!
