"Plaid Plant"

Actually, it's NOT a "plaid plant". But it does looks like plaid ribbon to me.
It is a type of Bromeliad. .

I'm suspecting you were out there with a brush and a jar of white paint before you took the pictures... /haha/

Love all the quotes too

I love those plants, but they don't do so well up here with our cold winters. Those were great photos Sandra.

It looks like someone took some white paint and put crude horizontal stripes across..... very unusual. I bet the flower is gorgeous when fully open. Oh, it looks like someone already had this thought.

Looks like someone got carried away with the paintbrush. Great shots and quotes.
Have a super weekend .

The Bromeliad is one of my favorites!! Tree frogs and mosquitoes enjoy them as well! Still, it never stopped me from planting and propagating! We have a similar variety (you've probably seen) as the blooms here. There are many different kinds. This one might be fun for Christmas too! These are terrific quotes Sandra! Hope you have a wonderful evening-

That's an intriguing pattern on the leaves ....

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a beautiful leaf pattern, it does resemble a plaid ribbon. I would love to have one of those as a house plant. Great quotes too Sandra.
