So, last May, before my gall bladder surgery, I picked up three plants.
I'm am not real good at keeping plants alive. The rosemary plant that I bought in January is turning black in my kitchen already!
But these Gerbera daisies thrived on the back step. This is what they looked like in October of last year.
And then, the Great Houston Snowstorm of 2011 hit in February. No snow to speak of in our neck of the woods, but we did get some freezing weather. And it took out my Gerbera daisies. The leaves turned from green to brown...and it was with great sadness that I plucked the dead stuff from the water bucket.
But, on Sunday morning I noticed this...
New growth springing forth from the barrenness. There are actually three new shoots emerging. The one to the upper right (near the label) is so small that it is hard to see in this picture, but it is there. I am so excited!
Now, if my mums can make a comeback too!
