Plant Crimes

This is an example of the poor planning that defines my sporadic gardening. The strangely paired bedfellows in this pot most surely do not belong together.

The red flower is a hippeastrum. I got a stack of bulbs from my friends Donna and Andrew who had an excess growing in the garden of their newly purchased house. That was so long ago. I had them in the garden, then it got too shady, or maybe I got rid of that garden altogether, and moved the bulbs about and one ended up in this pot.

At some other time, I was clearly walking around with a top of a pineapple we had eaten and wanted to plant. There must have seemed there was some space in the pot so in went the pineapple top.

Now a year or two later I have a baby pineapple (which is mega exciting, they take ages to fruit) and a flowering bulb.

These two plants must think they are the victims of a bad dating game. eHarmony gone way wrong. Or right. I dunno.
