Mystery plant...

Last year, I bought a fern for the front porch and a leaf of this little plant came home with us. Well, I just put it in some dirt and it became this beautiful plant and then in the fall it has the prettiest little lavender flowers. I brought it inside over the winter where it did not flourish but in the spring I put it back on the porch and now it's beautiful again. Oh, and some came up at the corner of the house this year from clippings I threw over the porch rail. I guess I don't have to bring it in this winter (yippee!) and maybe could plant it and let 'er go for it. Does anyone know what this plant is and if it's a perennial or did I just get lucky? It reminds me of a wandering jew with fuzz ;)

We got a replacement blueberry bush and a pecan tree yesterday, so that will be our weekend project. That and cheering for our football team on Saturday. I hope we get to hear "Rocky Top" a lot. I can hope!! We're being patient in this building year. I enjoy watching college football so much more than NFL. It' not so much glamor and so much more heart.

Anyway, have a great weekend and we send blessings from the holler.
