Here I am posting late yet again. Damn it I'm determined to do the blog-a-long for 30 days with Effy!! I just seem to get sidetracked, distracted, etc. I need to stop doing that. :)
I really didn't know what to even write about today. Honestly...I even forgot about it until just now. I'm bad I know lol
So I thought I would simply do an update regarding my post from a couple of days ago about the mystery flower. A dear Canadian friend found out it is called "Velvetleaf". Who'd have thought that a plant with velvety feeling leaves would be called something so simple and oh so obvious. LOL But it isn't a good plant, sadly. It's a broad leaf weed that can grow to 5 feet tall and its leaves can span up to 8 inches across. Its seeds can lie dormant in the ground for up to 50 years!!! It can also harbor diseases that are harmful to crops such as corn and soy. I think it said cotton also, but I'd have to double check. As pretty as it is, it will have to go.
Hopefully I will do better about remembering and not getting sidetracked tomorrow.
