Day 270

These are from a plant which a dear, dear friend gave to me almost two years ago. When she gave it to me, it was very small, in a pot, and I loved it. It sat in the pot on my porch for many months, and produced beautiful flowers, but something felt wrong. I could hear it begging me for more room to grow. Finally, I planted it in the ground near my porch, and it went crazy!! The plant sent new shoots off in every direction, and bloomed and bloomed and bloomed. I could almost hear it singing with joy at it's new-found freedom. Every time I see it, I think of my friend who moved very far away, and remember her fondly.
