Life, Redux

Mallows in bloom, zuri, finn, backyard 009
The Great Mother Mallow

Mallow collapsed, backyard 003
The Mother Mallow after the heavy rains came.

Mallow cutting, back yard, Mar 12 003
Starting over:  The Mother Mallow's cutting.

Mallow's clones 002
Mother Mallow II, 2013

Mallow's clones 004
And her triplets.

And who says, given a chance, life will not renew itself?

Silently a flower blooms,
  In silence it falls away; 
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
  The world of the flower, the whole of 
  the world is blooming. 
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
  of the blossom: 
The glory of eternal life is fully shinning here. 
                               Zenkei Shibayma

I've had mallows before but that one is a super mallow. All her "daughters" (cuttings) grew like crazy. If you'd like a cutting, give me a call.
