She presented it to me one day, for no reason, except that she is just a very "giving" person. When I asked her what it was, she replied, "I don't know. I saw it hanging in DH's office and it reminded me of you!" She is a sweetie!
It is now hanging between two of my kitchen windows. It has grown very slowly, but it is blooming again, so I guess it is happy. I thought maybe some of you plant experts out there might know what it is? I actually appears to be similar to some variety of pea plant.
I love it! So even if I never figure out what it is, than's okay with me!
Thanks again Marthine!
Here's a photo the whole plant. It is planted in bark in a shell, and is climbing up the hanging wire.
Here is a close-up of some of the blooms. They don't open, just form these little buds that last for days!
Here's a closer look at the shell planter and the little pods. To water, I sit whole shell (it has a drainage hole in the bottom) in water for about an hour every couple of days - less often in winter.
Cool, huh? Got any ideas what it is??
