Green Thumb Sunday


A Star is Born

This star of Bethlehem plant was given to me 2 years ago by the Mister's aunt. She's an avid gardener and has been kind enough to share her plants with us over the course of our relatively short gardening career. I could never get this one to bloom. Return it did last year, but blossom it did not. This year it was moved to make way for a new oak leaf hydrangea. Well, it seems that made all the difference.

I love receiving plants from friends and family. This lovely plant is now obviously happy in it's new spot.

Sara-
Thanks for stopping by. I've been trying to overcome my fear of moving plants. There's a part of me that still thinks I will cause it some injury. But as this experience taught, more often than not the plant is the better for it.
