A Little Mystery

Bloggie friends!

About a month back, I bought a pack of very sad and uncared for miniplug plants from a hardware shop.

The label only said “plants for hanging baskets”.

So here they are after a month of growing! What they will grow into, nobody knows - but what is life without a little mystery?!?!?!


Charlie says: I zap the giant indoor triffid plant with my laser eyes!


It's a four-day Easter weekend!! See y'all real soon! Have a good 'un!!!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Hmmm....good question! Maybe it the plant will just serve as a "carpet" for birds who want to nest there! What do you think?

Katnip Lounge said...

Mystery Plants? We want updates!

klahanie said...

Now then, bloggy friend, this is fascinating and intriguing. Right up there with why don't 'bedding' plants come with a duvet and matching pillows?
And Charlie, you might like to have another look at Penny's laser eyes in the last photo on her last posting. Scary stuff! :)
Take care eh and enjoy your Easter

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

is it possible that they could be ferns? The leaves look like ferns to me...if so....they will become full and gorgeous, super bushy and will hang over the sides of the pot. You will love them! ((((hugs)))) to you and Charlie

Ann Best said...

That looks like a very deep mystery indeed!!

I LOVE Charlie's eyes. So does Jen!!!

Have a lovely Friday.

Tiger Tha Laziest Cat said...

Cool mystery plants! It will be exciting to find out what they grow into! Cool lazer eyes! Hehe! Have a nice day!

Manzanita said...

I love that photo of the hanging plant and the light behind it with the window and the curtains showing. It just all fits together and makes a picture of art. Goooood job.
Darling picture of Charlie and your captions are so clever.

Brian said...

I hope you and Charlie enjoy the long weekend! Hey, those lasers will make the plants grow!!!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We don't know what your little plug plants will turn into Jenn - maybe a triffid!!
Charlie your laser eyes are on that big plant inside - what are you saying to it?
Enjoy your long weekend - and another one next weekend too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Katie Mills said...

Happy easter weekend! Enjoy the chocolate!

Marg said...

Hi there Charlie. We hope you have a great long week end.
That hanging basket looks like something we might have had at some point. I bet it will have little tiny flowers. But don't take our Mom's word for it. Have a good one.

Hart Johnson said...

Yeah, I know nearly nothing about plants, so I can't answer, but I am extremely impressed with Charlie' skill!

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

What fun!!!!!!!!!!! Mama is impatiently waiting to see what your mystery plants are!!!!!!!

As always, you're lookin' mighty handsome Charlie.

Love to both of you.....and we purray you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

The verification word is thymme and that made mama think of the BBC series years ago....Rosemary and Thyme. :)

notesfromnadir said...

HAPPY EASTER TO YOU & CHARLIE! :)

Is that hanging plant a fern? It looks nice.

Wow, the indoor plant is growing faster & faster due to those laser eyes! :)

The plant looks a little 'fernish', but what fun! Mystery plant!

Enjoy your long weekend!

Ellie said...

Hehehe. Charlie sure is giving that plant the death stare!

Can't wait to see what the mystery plants are.

the writing pad said...

At least they are growing - my basket plants last year were perfectly identifiable when I bought them - but unaccountably less so as time went by. I think I prefer your mystery to mine :-)

The Golden Eagle said...

It's interesting to watch unknown plants grow--I hope they end up being flowers, or something like that!

Have a wonderful four-day weekend! :)

Ginger Jasper said...

Love those lasers. Happy Easter,, Hugs GJ xx

laughingwolf said...

have a great one, kit!

pass this along to all writers, a lesson from the heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzgzim5m7oU

KarenMcG said...

Well, Old Kitty, you certainly seem to have a green thumb, as that plant with no name is mighty huge.

Remind us to not get too near Charlie as he will get us with his lasers if we're not careful!

Happy Easter

Summer Ross said...

I hope you have an eggtastic easter!

Daniela said...

the only house plants that we can have is cat grass. Nothing else is safe. Have a great weekend and don't eat the Easter Bunny

KarenG said...

This post really made me laugh. "Plant for hanging basket" LOL. It sounds like the store didn't know what it was either. Happy Easter! And hooray for Alex spotlighting your blog!

Charmaine Clancy said...

Love your mystery plant :)

Jessica Bell said...

Life is NUTTIN' without mystery! Have a happy Easter! :o)

Holly Ruggiero said...

Happy Easter. The little mystery add a little bit of fun to everyday life.

Stephen Tremp said...

See what a little love can do. That, and zapping cat eyes.

LTM said...

looks like it might be some type of fern, yes? And lol--Charlie w/the laser eyes. :D <3

Ella said...

If that is the start; it an umbrella tree...I have one. It is 4ft tall! I love your Kitty, so cute!

The Creek Cats said...

Happy Easter, friends!

Laura said...

Happy Easter - have a lovely time (Love the lazer eye photo!)

Lynda R Young said...

Gotta watch those eye lasers ;)

Happy Easter to you!

Theresa Milstein said...

A fern? As I'd said before, I'm really the last one to know about plants.

Charlie has laser eyes! Perhaps he can use them to figure out the mystery plant?

Joe Richardson said...

Love the triffid reference! I'd not heard of the book, and then a few years ago I caught an audio adaptation of it while I was commuting across Florida. Brilliant, and it kept me awake during the early a.m. hours.

Hadn't thought of it in years--and you brought it back to me! Nice!

But, um, doesn't that make you fret a bit over the mystery greens in the basket...?

Evelyn said...

They look like Bidens to me... lovely yellow flowers, or perhaps brachycome, blue flowers with yellow centres.

(But since I have just drunk rather a lot of wine my judgement may be warped.)

Have a good Easter everyone.

Rene said...

That's really cool--a plant mystery!

K.C. Woolf said...

I've got the same hanging basket at my front door! (except that it's filled with kitchen herbs, so not exactly the same, I guess)

I've discovered your blog on the last day of the A to Z challenge, but I'm hooked now: will you update us on the plants?
