September 23--okra leaves

Bad news: I realized this morning that what I'd thought were new hibiscus plants coming up were actually red okra plants I'd forgotten I'd planted.  Amazing how similar they are.  Good news: I harvested lots of the young  red okra this morning for an arranging workshop this weekend, and the leftovers (leaves pulled off to keep them out of bucket water, etc.) wound up on the windowsill. The little plants had lots of wonderfully red leaves almost at ground level.

Most beautiful of all were the stems.

Here's the whole array of "okra leftovers" I harvested and stuck in the windowsill.
