A Surprise Beauty (2012-05-27)

Late last year, I was trying to pluck a few leaves (from weeds) on the side of the road for Efoo to munch on, but I pulled too hard and the roots came out.

Went home, stuck the clump of leaves and roots in some used compost not expecting them to live. 

Surprisingly the tiny "plant" didn't die despite the lack of care and sporadic watering.  Efoo contiued to snack on the leaves throughout winter and spring.

The plant did grow many more branches but they were mostly stripped bare whose leaves went into Efoo's stomach. 

I spotted some buds on the tip of the branches and thought nothing of them.  Then one day I glanced at the plant and it had all these beautiful dainty little flowers!  What a pleasant surprise.
