Pickled Bird of Paradise

If Peter Piper picked a peck of crocked plants,
Where's the peck of crocked plants Peter Piper picked?

Bet you can't answer that one! Where would one find a peck of crocked plants? If the plant in question is a Bird of Paradise and the quantity is a bit more than a peck (20 gallons actually, which is 10 pecks) - then the answer is on my porch, of course! Remember the antique pickle crock we purchased last fall? (You can read about it here.) It's now the home for a lovely Bird of Paradise. This BofP should not be confused with the other birds who love the porch and make their nests in every available flowerpot - I'm referring to the nervy little Carolina wrens!

As we'll still in pollen season, the rest of the porch is quite dirty, but in a week or two we'll have it spic and span and can enjoy this new addition. And hopefully this plant will not be too large to come inside next winter . . .

Hope your week is off to a great start - as promised, garden etiquette is coming up in a few days (I was sidetracked by a busy, fun weekend)!
