Amelia Island may be famous for its shrimp but I spotted a form of the pink delicacies that I was not expecting at all. I was strolling down the sunny, cobblestone streets on a historical tour when my guide stopped and plucked a curving, pink branch from the flowering bush above. "What does that look like to you?" My guide asked, showing me the blossoms close up. It looks like a shrimp! Hence the name shrimp plant. They grow all over the island and my guide insisted that they will grow just about anywhere. Well, not in Chicago, I informed him. Not enough sun. Two weeks ago, guess what I spied for sale in front of my local grocery store? It was a vividly blooming, potted shrimp plant. In Chicago. I've never seen them here before and don't know how long they'll last but it just goes to show that sometimes things don't always make sense but it doesn't mean they can't happen.
