On a positive note ….


During my transplanting frenzy a couple of weeks ago one little corm broke off from the parent plant of the Oxalis Shamrock Plant.  I was nervous about the transplant and about the survival of the original plant outdoors on the front porch.  Each year my mother gave me an Oxalis around St. Patrick’s Day.  I had not been  able to keep one alive until 2003, the last year she gifted me with the annual Oxalis plant.  Fortunately, the 2003 Oxalis still thrives. I planted the little corm in a new pot and hoped it would grow.  Yesterday morning it appeared!

The mother plant is loving the front porch.  Perhaps she enjoys the company of the purple Oxalis from my Mother’s Day excursion with Nicole to Terrain.
