Stole my heart

I have often heard my mom say that if you want a cutting to propagate and  grow beautiful it needs to be...hmmmm...how should I put it? Acquired from a plant without anyone knowing...Hee, hee, hee.

Well, it might be just an "old wives tales" but let me tell you, there might be some truth to it :-)
One of my neighbors has a beautiful plant that stole my heart...so one day, as I was walking by I snatched a little piece...yes, without out her knowing...Yikes! I can't believe I'm admitting to it. Anyway...
It was just a little branch and I thought it would never make it but look...It has even flowered already.
Not sure what it's called though...If anyone out there knows, I would love to know the name of this sweet little purple flowered plant. Please share it with me :-)


Thank you for stopping by today.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
 
 
 
Hugs and Kisses,

What a thief. :) Teee Heee....

I visited my doc in the early summer and there was a huge shrub outside his office I just loved. I snipped off a piece and now it's almost ready to transplant into our yard.

LOVE IT!

I hadn't heard that old wives' tale, but my neighbors have some hydrangeas which I have been coveting, so maybe I need to do a midnight raid?

Your plant is beautiful - I don't know what it is called, though.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Who would have thought that sweet Ana could be a thief? LOL You do know I'm just teasing right?

That is a beautiful plant! The color purple is so vibrant.

Your flower is lovely. My neighbor constantly sends her little daughter to our house to ask for cuttings from our yard. I don't mind. Her yard is looking great now! :)

I think starting flowers that way is a great idea! My neighbor was showing me some flowers growing in her yard and then said she started them from some of mine! I thought that was pretty funny and didn't mind that she had taken some cuttings.
Blessings,
Janet
