Swaddled Okra

Mummy told me this morning that another Star of David okra flower was wide open, but I had a million things to do and did not take a photo. By the time I trotted outside, the flower had curled its petals tightly. It looks just like a baby wrapped in blankies! At Christmastime, we say that Mary wrapped baby Jesus in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger. The okra has no manger but never mind.

  1. O! I didn’t know they wrapped up tightly when they are done. Here I am thinking that all unopen okra flowers have not been pollinated.
