Hello peaceniks, and happy Friday!

Welcome back to the Good To Grow site, and thanks for being here.

Welcome to Friday. We’ll get to the puzzler action right after we admire the adorableness of our Experts, who are on a much-deserved break:


So cute! They’ll be back later in the month. Thank you for your continued patience while they are away.

Let’s get to the current puzzler:

???Real or Fake???

Last week, I asked if these Wisteria flowers were real or fake:

Good To Grow, real or fake plant puzzler

Let’s see how you answered:

Steph from Indianapolis wrote, “Aw those are lovely! I can’t wait to see signs of life around here! Real!”

Claude from Random Rants and Prickly Plants wrote, “Real live wisteria.”

That’s two votes real, zero votes fake.

What’s the correct answer?

Let’s take a wider view:
