Growth Through Plants and Friendship
A friend was in town the other day
and stopped by to see me and the farm house.
We had some hostas that we had taken out
because there were too many
and they were too close together.
We offered them to her
and she was happy to have them.
This is like a small one she took.
Here are the hostas that are left
after 'thinning' out some.
There are three plants in this planter.
The shamrock plant is the one that's important to this post.
Our high school is the 'Shamrocks'.
Every year I get several of these plants.
They are annuals here in this part of Ohio.
My friend lost her mother a little while ago.
By the time I realized I wanted to send flowers,
it was too late.
Then I thought of the shamrock plants
waiting to be planted.
I had plenty of nice pots.
So I chose a plant
(she graduated with us, so she's a 'shamrock'too)
and a pot,
put them together,
and then put them in a gift bag
with a card.
My wonderful husband
delivered it to the funeral home
the next day
before the funeral was scheduled
(I was at school).
Now I think of her and our friendship when I look at my plant.
Growth. Plants. Friends.
You can see the shamrock leaves in this photo.
