Here is something I thought was interesting. This sprouting plant has skewered the leaf. Its hard to figure out how it happened, since the leaf is so light in weight, I would have assumed that the growing plant would have just lifted it up, until it fell out of the way. Instead it went right through it.
I am thinking maybe the leaf was held in place, frozen to the ground, when the plant started its upward trajectory. Perhaps the leaf had a small hole in it that the plant took advantage of. Who knows, just another of nature’s little mysteries.
