These plants are all over my yard. They look just the same as another plant but this one is special because when you wave your hand over it.....poof....it disappears. I really dont care about the official name for them.. I call them 'ghost plants'.
I have a new little tree too and I am amazed to see that it goes to sleep in the evening and on rainy days. It is conserving energy I guess The leaves look very much like these little leaves. Very sensitive. It will have big red puff ball blossoms on it someday. It sleeps!!!
When I first moved there there were such pretty little rose vines in the yard and I didnt want to cut them. Now I mow them relentlessly and pull them out because they are really aggressive. Such pretty red roses and yet so smartly invasive.
The plant world amazes me. Gardening is brutal and I have actually given up on ordering dirt and putting in a real garden. Im having fun decorating the holes left by the palm trees I sold. I dont have to do anything....Im old. ha. But the plants still talk to me and I find myself yelling at some of them and teasing the others....especially the ghost plants, I like to see them cringe.
