A conversation -
Husband - what's that plant that's growing in the garden, I thought at first it was a starfish? (He isn't very knowledgeable about plants).
Me - what plant?
Husband - the one growing on the back lawn.
Me - that'll be a weed.
Husband - the one growing in the grass - the orange one.
Me - we haven't got any orange plants growing in the grass, we only have weeds.
Husband - there's definitely an orange plant growing in the grass, the shape of a starfish.
Me - I'll go and have a look myself!
And what do you know, it is a starfish!!!!
We only live two minutes walk away from the beach, but I'm sure it would take a starfish a lot longer to walk the distance.
Presumably a seagull has lost his tasty snack.
