Has it been a month since I posted?! There’s been a lot of things happening and nothing much going on at the same time, if that makes any sense. Lots of little things but nothing too major for my family. My google reader is out of control and I seriously need to cut back on facebook! We’ve had some time with the kids and babies lately so that’s been fun; maybe I’ll post some random pictures. I think I’ve finally found a dr./eye dr. that might know what’s wrong with my eye but will know more next month when I go back. We don’t have anything big planned right now for the long weekend, hubby will probably have to work some of the time.
In the meantime while I try to catch up, take a look at this plant for me. It was given to me and I have no idea what it is.

It looks pretty right now but I’m not very good with plants, and really no good if I don’t get some instructions! There was no tag to tell how to care for it or identify it. So if you know what kind of plant it is or what it needs to survive please let me know! Otherwise it might not last long around here.
What’s new with you?
Hope you have a great memorial day weekend!

    Hope the new eye doctor will get you fixed up. I need to go, but keep putting it off. Nothing like procrastination 🙂

    No idea on the plant, there was no sticker or tag? Ask your Master Gardner friend… or go look at Lowe’s or somewhere and find one like it maybe. It actually sort of looks like a house plant to me rather than outdoor. It might need a lot of shade. You have more of that than I do, so you should be fine with that. Let me know when you find out!

    Hmmm…I don’t know what kind of plant that is, but it sure is pretty.
    Good to hear from you and to know that life is just being normal. Normal is good!

    I had a plant like that once. Definitely a house plant. That’s all I can tell you! Mine lasted quite a while and came back into bloom a time or two, from what I remember.

    Good luck with the eye doc. Glad to hear life is good for you!

    It’s good to see a post from you, I’ve missed you around blog land 🙂

    I hope the doctor can figure out what’s happening with that eye!

    I’m not so good with plants either. Around here it’s survival of the fittest. LOL.

    No clue what your plant is, but it is pretty! Hope the doc can figure out and cure your eye problem ASAP!

    Hi Gail,

    I think that is a kolancho plant. It is an outdoor plant here in the south so you might get away with it in the garden. But it does fine indoors too. Don’t water it too much. It is sort of succulent type in the leaves so it likes to dry out between.

    Google Kolancho and see if it seems to be that.
