Our Lenten rose is quite the story. We used to live in an old 1920′s bungalow close to Downtown Atlanta. Around the corner was a really old park that we in the neighborhood helped to clean of debris, trash and weeds. During one of those adventures, we found baby Lenten rose plants growing in the crack of the sidewalk…each with one tiny stalk and 2 tiny leaves.
We thought to ourselves “Why not try to transplant these little lovelies? Maybe they’ll grow for us..” Lo and behold! This one surely did!
Now it is the star of our late Winter/Early Spring garden. Color when the rest of the plant world is sleeping.
