This post is for my plant loving friends and anyone else who wants to play along. Can you name this plant??
Let me tell you the story behind the weird plant picture. Dave and I went to Kamakura for lunch. (For the record, Kamakura is Dave’s favorite city in Japan.) Afterward, we walked around the shops. As we were wandering through the cute shops, we went past a flower shop and these were in a plastic crate out front. They were being sold for ¥648 or about $6.00.
Each of the skeletal leaf sacks were attached to a stem. Most of the stems had 2-3 sacks attached. Inside the sack was something that looked like a tomato. Here is a close up picture to help you determine what this plant might be!
Good luck! Bragging rights and perhaps a fun Japanese surprise to the correct answer!
