My neighbor Mr. B and I often discuss what' happening in the garden, exchanging thoughts on what the deer and bunnies are eating, what needs to be pulled out or what we like in other people's yards. But my FAV moments talking to Mr. B are when he says to me "Do you think that's a weed?" and points out some new monstrous growth that has popped up in his yard. Occassionally I say "Well I always pull those out". But this time - I must insist - he has grown a weed to be proud of! This thing is HUGE! I took this photo after the kiddos were in bed last night, or I would have had Ari and Jack pose next to it! It's at least 3 ft tall and has HUGE velvety silver leaves. The top actually looks like it may bloom! I will keep an eye on it and post more pictures if it does.
