Seeing as though it's #white theme day I thought I'd do a bit of plant cataloguing of images I've not uploaded yet! This was a surprising one for me as I didn't realise Chinese Lantern plants actually produced flowers! 😀 #physalis

@kathy - Thanks Kathy! They're quite difficult to photograph as they hide between the leaves of the plant! 😀

You've just reminded me that I'd like one of these! 👍

@SylviaDavies - I've wanted one for ages, and even have seeds to sow, but couldn't resist picking up a very small plant when I saw it at the GC last year! It promptly withered away and I thought I'd lost it, but here it is, looking ten times the size and very healthy! 😀

Ah right! I may have got rid of mine sooner than I should! @bigemrg

That's what happened to mine. It's just showing signs of life now, although not as much as yours 👍

@titchyfra - Yes, I've read that they can be invasive! Mine is in a pot although I'd rather have it running wild in the garden than the horsetail grass that I currently have! 😀
