Contest! Identify this plant to win free stuff!





I've been taking a lot of pics in our backyard lately, documenting all of the fascinating things we've got growin' back there. This photo was an accident, but it got me to thinking: wouldn't it be fun to do contests with the blurry pics to see if anyone can identify them? My EtsyAustin pal, Christine of adaptive reUse, has been doing a similar thing on her blog already. She holds contests to identify her mysterious thrift store finds, so I got the idea from her. My contest is this: the first person to leave a comment with the correct answer will win one of my ready-to-color greeting cards of their choice! Here's a hint: it's native to the Carolinas in the U.S. Have fun & check back on Monday for the answer!
