A woman in the area grows castor plants in her yard.
They are the only ones I've seen in the area.
While not your usual pretty flower, their coloring and shapes are interesting. Other than the plant itself and the woman who grows it,
nothing seems to like them as they are toxic.
The plants in her yard have been up to ten feet tall.
However, I don't think she planted them this year
because their usual patch is empty, with only a couple small volunteers.
And here is a whole crowd of little purple guys,
jubilantly showing their faces to the sun.
They form an entire border edging one back yard.
