Monday's Mystery

Yes bloggie friends, it’s Old Kitty’s Mystery Plant Monday! LOL!

Or “What the heck is that?!”

As always I’ve lost the label as this was a bulb I planted two years ago and this year it’s turned out to be this weird and ever so wonderful creature!

What say you fab bloggie friends?

Charlie says: I like how you use pics of me or your silly plants when you run out of interesting things to say in your blog.

Have a manic Monday everyone!

Brian said...

I'd tell you, but then I'd have to whap you! Honestly, I have no idea, but it looks tasty! Howdy Charlie!

Theresa Milstein said...

That's a pretty tropical looking plant. I have no idea, but I think your garden is looking good. How's your sunflower?

Your post was short and sweet.

Have a great week!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

What is it? You are asking the wrong guy, Kitty!

The Creek Cats said...

We don't know what that strange plant is! Very interesting!

Hi there, cute Charlie!

Katnip Lounge said...

I have no clue! But I'm all gaga over Charlie's BIIIIG stretch!

Summer Ross said...

Jacqueline said...

Reenie said...

Now now Charlie... you are being a little too hard on your sweet mummy!

Boonie S said...

It’s a triffid.

Have a nice day, Boonie

Joanne Fox said...

Now that I don't know. It reminds me of succulent-type plants that grow in arid climates, like agaves. But I don't think they grow from bulbs. Hope someone can enlighten us. x

Kea said...

I've never seen anything like it, but I'm sure one or more of your followers will know.

Charlie knows a picture is worth 1000 words. :-)

Have a lovely Monday! No moving this week for you, I hope. LOL.

Talli Roland said...

It's quite phallic, isn't it? hehe! I'm so mature, I know.

Sorry - not much of a help!

Evelyn said...

Hi Kitty, looks like a Eucomis or Pineapple Lily to me.

You sound as good as I am at labelling things.

Ellie said...

Yikes that is an interesting looking plant. I'm afraid I'm not much use when it comes to naming plants!

Hart Johnson said...

I have no CLUE what it is, but can assure you Dr. Suess is responsibel. That is the kind of thing I wish MY garden had, though as you are in a temperate zone, and Michigan might as well be tundra, I hold little hope that the bulb is hearty enough. (love the Charlie sprawl!)

Hannah and Lucy said...

You are having a lovely stretch in the sunshine Charlie - it looks so good. Mum doesn't know what the plant is either.

Jackee said...

Oh, wow! Is it a yucca of some kind? A monocot?

Too cool! And I disagree, Charlie. :o) That is a very interesting post. (Ha, ha.)

Jayne said...

It's most definitely a Triffid. Run away!

Sammy and Andy said...

MOL at Charlie!!!!!!!!!!!

Our mama just posts jokes or cartoons when her mind is blank....at least yours posts plants and you, Charlie.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Marg said...

That is a wonderful looking plant but I don't have a clue what it is. Charlie we love pictures of you and the plants, so we hope your assistant keeps on running out of things to blogs about.Hope you have a wonderful day. Keep posing Charlie.

Ginger Jasper said...

Not sure what it is but looks quite attractive to me.. Love your picture Charlie.. Hugs GJ x

Alexandra Crocodile said...

It's an evil alien! Kill it, Charlie, kill it now!

laughingwolf said...

maybe it's just a 'happy' plant? :O lol

notesfromnadir said...

Looks tropical!

Charlie looks like he's really busy in that picture! :)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh it feels like we haven't visited with you in forever - I hate getting so behind. I have no clue what that plant is - my only guess is "plant".

Hi Charlie - we think that lots of pictures of you is a great idea, even if it is just because she can't think of what to write (imagine how hard it is for those of us who do most of our writing about our cats - when I can't think of what to write, I don't have any sort of fall-back!)

ABBY said...

Hi Charlie
We liked how you reclined on the sunny area outside your house.

Wish we could offer you a suggestion on the plant. We think it is furry pretty, but don't know what it is.

The Monkeys said...

We have no idea what that plant is, but there's an awfully adorable kitty in the pic!

Claudia said...

Hi Old Kitty,
I've seen this plant before but don't know the name. It's this a plant that has some air-filled flowers that pop when you squeeze them? Nice pic, Charlie ;)

You can call me Ant. said...

hmmm I'm not sure, but it looks friendly!

m.q said...

what a great posing charlie. role over..hahaha

Al said...

Careful! It looks a bit like a Triffid!

Margo Berendsen said...

I have no clue but it sure is an odd one! I love Charlie's pose in this picture. Don't cats make you envious some times?

fairyhedgehog said...

This didn't arrive in my blog reader! And today there's no post at all.

I hope everything's OK with you, Kitty!

Felted House said...

I have absolutely no idea about the plant, but can leave a comment admiring Charlie's glorious tail instead! XX

Words A Day said...

Its one of a kind...i.e i'm clueless about plants! Looks like one of those little rock plants with a mind of its own fell in love with the sun!

Ann said...

Sorry I can't be of any help to you in identifying the plant. It is interesting looking though.

Tell Charlie not to be so cheeky!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh my..what is that? I guess it is some sort of flower that is going to seed?

Charlie knows how to stretch...ah, that feels good!

wildcatwoodscats said...

Haven't a clue what the plant is???? Love Charlie's yoga stretch!

Deborah said...

It looks like a Lilly to me! Did it flower?
Have a happy Wednesday!
xxoo

Manzanita said...

Looks a little too tropical for my part of the country. I don't have a clue what it is but It's a wonderful addition to your garden. I'll bet Charlie knows but he ain't telling.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

It's a Triffid!

Ever read DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS by John Wyndham? It's even set in England. Intelligent plants learn to move and attack humans.

Better watch out, Charlie!

Have a great end of week, Roland
