But then it started getting late on me , so I went out and locked up the Chickens and even squeezed in a short walk. While walking up the hill I noticed this flower on the ground , and right away I knew what it was because there is a story that informed me. LOL
I had wanted a PawPaw tree and finally located one at a flea market about 6 years ago. I carried my treasure home and planted it right at the pond so that nobody would run over this treasure. Then I watched it slowly grow for 4 years.One day as I studied the leaves I took one in the house and looked it up online as I held the leaf in my hand.
I discovered it was called either a Popular -or - a Tulip Tree. I was so disappointed that my treasure was not what I had intended it be. Then DH rubbed salt in the wound by saying , "those things grow wild all over the place". I had been suckered when someone had put a different tag on the tree. This particular flower came from one along our walk. Of course it grows WAY took big for where it is at right now because of the power lines and the phone lines . I do not know what hubby will decide to do about it because he is thinking about it , maybe?
