Remember This?

Over the winter, I worried about the mandevilla I had brought inside to see if it would survive until this summer. My readers will probably groan at the thought of hearing still more about it. I named it the Dr. Seuss plant when it got way out of hand, a skinny, scrawny thing, growing up, up and up to the ceiling and stretching itself out in every direction.

Come spring, I moved it outside, hoping for the best. I cut it back severely. It never quite died, but didn't look very healthy for months. then when I decided it had about had it, I moved it UNDER the plant stand while I put a larger flowering plant on top. I intended to get around to throwing out Dr. Seuss. Never did. I kept forgetting it.

Today I actually looked under the stand because I kept seeing some strange leaves above the other plant, at the base of the hummingbird feeder post.

Dr. Seuss lives!

WOW, Bobbie, Dr. Seuss looks like it is flourishing under that plant stand. Guess it just wanted to be left alone. I sometimes feel that way, too. Have a good week!

Yae, Dr. Seuss! Looks like he's really making a comeback!

Oh, the things that plant can do! Looks like it has strong survival instincts. Good thing he doesn't live at my house or he would have been long gone!

Happy Sunday!

Yay! for Dr. Seuss.
Bobbie, your shadows are lovely too. Your grandson seems like such a gentle caring child taking care of his kitty.

Hooray for Dr. Suess! I love plants that seem to thrive on neglect. Kewl yellow mermaid sign ;--)
