My apologies go out to those of you that usually have your Sunday morning coffee here at CardCastles. Daylight Savings has my internal clock a bit off today so this Sleepy Sundays post is a bit later than usual.
Sleeping issues aside, I have a special treat for long-time readers here this Sunday. If you’ve read Mother’s Day Marigold and Brand New Friends, then the photo above may look a bit familiar to you. That’s because the tiny bloom pictured above is the “child” of the last one.
It was suggested by a friend to save the seeds of the original plant when they began to drop. Sadly, late last year, after almost two years, the old plant withered away and died. Then, early this year, something magical happened. A new little sprout began to flourish.
Monday of this week brought an even bigger surprise. Our tiny spout had grown and a flower began to show. Two days ago, it opened up to touch the sun. I got all sentimental. Wouldn’t you?
Someone joked that I may take this plant everywhere we move from now on, much like Leon from The Professional. I always liked him anyway.
Do you have something special that has stood the test of time?
Have a growing Sunday!
