Persephone Rising

Last year, my spectacular 20++ year-old mallow plant blazed into a stunning glory then, pounded by the heavy weight of rain, collapsed and fell over.  I quickly took some cuttings from the plant, potted them up, and months later, re-planted a hardy new Persephone.  She's not yet ready to bloom, but that will happen this summer.  And she's not 8' tall, yet, but that will come as well.

The first day of Spring will arrive on March 20th. Treasure the miracles that are happening all around you. New life from old, all the little glories.

Thanks for the update Ann and the wise words. And it looks like the daughter plant is doing great! Life goes on.
