Friday Show and Tell......

Friday is Show and Tell over at Kelli's..........so here is mine........





If you read my blog last week about 'Eight Random Things About Me' , then you know I don't eat eggs....ugh....however, I do grow them......Where do you get yours?

A very dear gardener friend of mine, Jeanette, started me growing 'eggs' a few years ago. The green plants are pretty just growing but in a few weeks purple blooms appear. Then in a short while, the eggs begin to grow. As the plant ages, the eggs grow larger.....finally the eggs turn a deep, golden yellow......

This plant has about twelve eggs on it........It's a great conversation starter.......Children as well as adults are amazed to see 'eggs' growing on a bush.......I also have 'money' plants...that's for another day.......

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how do your eggs grow?

Are they edible, or is it just a conversation piece?

And here all my life I've been thinking eggs only comes from chickens! LOL Oh Betty, what a fabulous plant...of course I've seen eggplants but only the purple variety, I didn't realize the fruit could come in white also!! Very fascinating!! We can't grow them here because they are sensitive to cold. xox

Hi Betty,

Wanted to take a moment to stop by for a visit. I started my new job this week, so I am behind in blogging. I pray your trip this week went well.

What an interesting Show and Tell. I have never seen anything like it before.

Have a blessed weekend my friend.
