I was walking Connor this weekend and noticed a very unusual flower blooming in a hedgerow. It was so interesting, with so many extraordinary features, that I thought I’d share it with you and see if you had any idea what it is. The flower has purple and white squiggly petals, leading to a center section. However, below the purple petals, there are some white petals and an outer layer of green petals, as you can see from this shot of the stem side. Each of the green pieces has something that looks like horns on it. The center of the flower is almost orchid-like. It has five of the “freckled” looking bits and above that there are three more pieces sticking out. It’s really the most amazing and elaborate flower I’ve seen in a long time. Finding it growing wild in a hedgerow in the middle of the city astounds me. It almost looks like a blown glass piece from Murano, Italy. But it’s real.Do you know what it is? I sure don’t!
