I love plants & during the winter months when many of my outdoor plants are snug inside I'm reminded of their origins - many gifts or pass-alongs from friends - each holding memories for me
this is a 'pregnant onion' - given to me by my 11th (or was it 12th?) grade physics teacher, Ms. Royal - I lost the original plant, but had passed along some to Deanna, so it came back to me again this past summer!
African violet that blooms purple - from Pauline Wright, a woman from my church growing up, given to me during my high school years - have had it now 15 or 16 years!
a 'walking iris' - I got just a tiny clump of this from Gertrude in Athens - it's done so well here in Savannah, spreading into a beautiful plant - Nana Mott used to have a hanging pot of this on her back porch
