My Thoughts... Exactly!

Hey, you wanna know what I think?

Jade Jewels

Several years ago — maybe 10? — my mother sent me off on my drive back home from visiting her, sending along the typical snacks and hot coffee for the 450-mile drive to San Diego, a traditional send-off. In the bag of goodies, she also included a snapped off branch from a Jade plant, with the message that this was from one of the same plants my grandmother had planted in the 1940s or 1950s.

They are easy to plant… you just stick the branch in the ground and water it once in while. They grow.

This plant is still with me, and today I noticed it has flowered. Raindrops bejewel it, adding interest and sparkle. Each flower measures about 5/8″ (1.6cm) across.
