adopt-a-plant

some very generous neighbors are redoing their landscaping and in the process, pulled out a rather stubby looking sago palm. D. & i have never been ones to turn away an offer to nurture a living thing and so the stubby sago (sans green, i might add) came to rest in our yard. for several weeks D. was like a maniac with the sprinkler! but then came our family vacation in May. a whole week away. how would the sago do? apparently, it felt the love before we left...because on our arrival back home, this is what we saw...

new fronds unfurling from the top of the stub! those tender new fronds felt like velvet on your hand! how marvelous!

and at the base...

the "babies" of the sago were completely open and gloriously green! welcome to the garden!!
