They are all almost 4 ft. tall! Still no blossoms! Pooey...I just go and inspect every morning. Come on, okra...start produciung, will ya???
Below you can make out the red center where the stem meets the leaf...the stem turns read also, and it seems the red gradually disappears. I don't have any really red ones now, but they are quite bright for a period of time. A very pretty leaf! What is astounding to me is that the leaves feel like the outside of an okra...fuzzy, and slightly sharp...they feel very rough, tough, and like they WILL grow and be productive...they really seem to make a statement about their strength!
Here is a side shot showing how tall they are.
The little shiny blue Longlegged Flies are back. They had showed up on my pink eyed peas too! They sure are cute!
And check out Buddha...he sure is attracting all the love from the red vincas!!!
I have my beautiful granddaugher, Emily on my lap as I type. She is having her 2nd birthday party next weekend. I will be sure to take pics!
