Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

I was a child when we left the house in which I was born, but I remember my father taking with us part of a Hosta plant which had graced our garden for several years.   Hosta is the easiest plant to divide, you just place two garden forks back to back to split the root stock into pieces.  It usually ‘takes’ very well in its new habitat.  When my brother and I grew up and moved to our own homes, we each took with us a clump of the root stock for our new gardens, continuing the practice as we eventually moved on to other parts of the country.  Eventually the chain broke, but for a long time the beautiful plantain lily (different varieties seen above) represented our own little bit of treasure from the past.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Very touching, Sandra. I have a snake plant that belonged to my mother. When she passed away more than 25 years ago, it was a spindly little thing in a tiny pot. Now it’s 5 feet tall and hogs the entryway in my home! It always makes me think of her. 🙂

  7. I love the idea. I have old plants from my grandmother and from my husbands grandmother. Also old roses from species extinct now. Lovely entry!

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
