Happiness is...Longtime Flora Friends

There was never any doubt in my mind that some plants would move with us...they have been with us a long time, like pets.

And so came the pot of mums...
Mums

and the plumeria...
Plumeria

The pot of mums has been with us for a number of years, often reminding me, before I want to be reminded, that autumn is on the way.

The plumeria I grew from a stickling bought at Hilo Hattie's...who knows how many years ago. Once again this year it is going to reward us with flowers.

The question is...which will happen first...the onset of autumn signaled by the cheery yellow mums? Or the remembrance of the tropics brought on by the lovely scent of pink plumeria??
