Green unknown flower
♥ Join GTS ♥

This plant really is like a green alien to me. What on earth is this? Any one that know? We spotted it in the island Fuerteventura in Spain in 2005.

Strangely enough, it reminded me of a satellite dish even though it isn’t round, but I’m weird ;-) Maybe it’s the green aliens way of communication…? *LMAO*

TIP: Head over to Mélange to read about the unusal smelly Corpse flower if you haven’t already had a look! I’ve never seen or heard of anything like it before!

    I see you are busy with your gardening, but ever you have time you should read about the story which happened in Belgium yesterday ! It’s unbelievable. Such a thing can only happen here !

    Lifecruiser: I had to pop over at once of course, curious as I am :-) Well, I’m not so sure, maybe it will happen in Sweden too some day soon….

    It does look like some kind of off-world transmitting device, doesn’t it! Hope you discover what it is …

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s such an angle on it, isn’t it?

    I don’t know what it is and I am not sure why you think of a satellite dish but then you found my fly to be cute!!!

    I do like the way the leaves are held up like a sunflower face. Really cool! Maybe if Tricia comes by she will know what it is!

    Lifecruiser: I know, I’m weird :-) Yes, I’m hoping for that, we’ll see…..

    looks like it belongs in the little shop of horrors.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it does huh? *s*

    deb UNITED STATES said:

    Whatever it it, it sure is big. I like the shape of it. I guess it’s some kind of succulent?

    Lifecruiser: Yes, maybe it is a succulent. i was thinking that, but is hesitating anyway.

    Love that plant, but I don’t know what it is either!

    And how strange that Mélange would write about the same thing I did today! :shock:

    Lifecruiser: Yes, that really was a concidence! Though I must admit that your orchids were a totally other epxerience to see. Very lovely :-)

    A type of Cactus I would say :)

    Lifecruiser: Could be. Especially since it’s placced among other cactus spieces.

    Sorry, I’m late. But I tried to find out the name of the green ones, but failed. Took me the whole day and evening, so I descided to post a green one myself.

    PS. Not the Green House Effect

    Lifecruiser: Bummer ;-) Aha, I have to pop over and have a look of course!


    Wow! What a weird plant! It looks like some plant monster about to devour me, lol! :eek:

    Lifecruiser: I know…. Be aware…. don’t come too close ;-)

    Glad you like the sheep, the sun was setting, my camera batteries were dying but I managed to get about ten shots of them.

    Love your golf game rules, very funny, I play pocket golf now and again!

    Hope you are both keeping well.


    Love and big wet kisses

    Lifecruiser: Liked? I loved it -as well as your comments :-) Well, Martin, OK as long as you keep your balls in the pocket…. *lol*


    It’s very hard to tell from the photo (i can’t see the detail in the middle too well) From this end, it looks very much like a giant agave (succulent?) ;) I’ll post some pictures of mine tomorrow, see how it compares ;)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I’ know, but I didn’t think that it got any better on a bigger photo either, bummer.


    [...] Here we go Mrs.Lifecruiser, [...]

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it could very well be the same plant or at least they’re related to each other, since they’re so alike each other. Interesting. We don’t have that plant over here in Sweden at all.
