Laura Thornton’s Gift

Besides Laura’s wonderful bread (that my mother still talks about to this day), Laura brought us this beautiful little plant when Charlotte was born in May, 2005, that I used to keep on my windowsill shelf in the kitchen in Virginia.  I have been meaning to tell her about this “little” plant and keep forgetting, so here’s a blog about it.  It now takes up most of a counter.   It has not bloomed since we first got it, but I am seeing a few buds now.  We’re all hoping for some flowers.  This plant, according the the label is called a Calandiva.

    Goodness- I had forgotten all about that plant! Glad to hear it is still alive- I usually can’t keep a basil plant alive for more than a month…!
