An Anomaly

Infrequently, we find a freak in the garden.

The latest was found yesterday.

I mean an irregularly formed flower.

Sometimes calla blooms curl down as they get heavy with seed or full of water.


A normal bloom looks like this from the top.  A folded spathe around a spadix.

I went to stake a droopy Hot Chocolate bloom back up and found a surprise.

DOUBLE calla bloom/two spathes

The bloom included a double spathe.



FLOWER loves her freaks, too.
