Plant Photo: Chinese Lantern (Physalis alkekengi)

Chinese Lantern Plant Photo by Aquariann

Remember the fascinating passion flower I shared in September? That wasn't the only plant that put a spell on me in my friend's yard. Doesn't this fruit husk look like a fairytale pumpkin? Hence why I waited to post its cuteness until now. Have a happy Halloween!

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
