Gunnar and I spend a lot of time in the school room, and the windowsills are often full of our ongoing science experiments. I brought this little plant up to demonstrate heliotropism (how the leaves will turn to face the sun) and then left it, because why not?
A friend of ours in Wenatchee pinched a start of this from the famous Ohme Gardens. Kerry has always been kind of amazed that this very elegant and proper lady would pinch a plant (!) and when we were over visiting one year, he asked her for a cutting. It's a ground cover - I think a kind of Creeping Jenny - and I have a patch of it in my flowerbed.
One year I thought I ought to bring a bit of it in for the winter, because what if it got too cold and killed it off? But take a good look...
Do you think the plant knows it's spring?
Look how it's trying to propagate!
And speaking of spring...
flowering red currant :D
