This plant is called, I believe, lamb's ear. It has many names in French including oreille d'agneau, as you'd expect. There was a good-sized patch of it in this spot when we moved in, but over the years it's gone away, except for two or three survivors.

One of the few remaining lamb's ear plants among the ivy and weeds.

Since we're having gigot d'agneau (lamb's leg) for lunch tomorrow, I thought a photo of a fuzzy lamb's ear would be appropriate.


  1. Can you make a silk purse out of that?

  2. In French, it is called oreille d’ours or oreille de lapinwhich in English is Bear’s ear or hare’s or rabbit’s ear.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Ken!

  4. I have soooooo much lambs ear in my front gardens. It spreads like nuts. I used to like it, but I don't like it being everywhere.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal tomorrow!

  5. Very appropriate. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Ken and the critters!

  6. mitch, well, I sure couldn't. I can barely sew on a button.

    chm, yup!

    evelyn, thank you! Enjoy your day. :)

    judy, ours stopped spreading and went into reverse! Happy T-day!

    bettyann, thanks! Same to you and yours.
