A memory is a photograph taken by the heart...to make a special moment last forever...and of all the memory-pictures that happy times can bring, the best are those that families make together ~

Tradescantia Zebrina ~ Wandering Jew Plant ~

This purple Wandering Jew (Tradescantia Zebrina) plant belonged to my mom . . . it (and many of her plants) hadn't been watered in months. It's now here in my home and after a few months of special care, it's finally coming back . . .  it's as healthy as I remember it when mom had it hanging in her patio. Mom and I both have always had Wandering Jews in our homes, they are such a neat plant and hardy ones too! I know she would be happy that her plants are doing very well.

Stained glass and Sweet Peas ~

The purple Sweet Peas are from my garden and the half moon shaped stained glass window belonged to my beautiful mom . . . she had it made for a window in her home, which now has a place in my office window.
