Outdoor Wednesday: Mystery Flowers

Beach week is almost here! The week we wait for, all the year! (Gee, I'm a poet.) If all goes well, we'll be heading off soon for a few days of sand and surf and seafood on the Atlantic coast. I've been looking through some of the photos I took in Rehoboth last year, and found these shots of some strange-looking plants we noticed in a little alleyway.

I have no idea what they are, and the shop next to them was closed so I couldn't go ask anyone. But I thought they looked a little like the spore-producing plants in one of the classic Star Trek episodes. (Don't get too close, or they'll take over your brain!)

Any idea what they might be?

Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. To see many, many more outdoor photos or to post some of your own, please visit her blog.


  1. I have no idea what this is, but I do agree, it is quite unique.

  2. By the way, your header photo is so neat. I love it.

  3. Oh, I really like those flowers! The color is so vibrant. Enjoy the shore!

  4. Not idea what they are, Joy, but they are really pretty....

    Hope you have a wonderful time at the beach... I'd love to be there myself.
