Botanical Oddities

Our rhubarb has flowers! I didn't know rhubarb had flowers.  It's never done it before and it's been there for years.  They look like triffids. Must get a picture.

And then there was the plant that the kids wanted to save. They found it dumped in the woods and wanted to plant it in their bit and bring it back to it's former glory.  It had obviously been in a pot (har! har!) at some point in the recent past.  However, as it had spiky leaves and a pungent aroma, we didn't feel it was the right kind of plant for a bunch of small children to be growing. We told them it would give them a nasty rash and they were happy to add it to the compost heap!

Here's an artistic impression of what they found!!!
