Little Lost Plant


I rescued this plan from the roadside by the garage near my house. I was walking back when I saw it fallen by the pavement, all frozen and potless.
I repotted it, and put in inside my kitchen where it will hopefully keep flowering with its little pink rose like flowers.
Where there is a limited pallette in the garden in December these house plants can bring you some colour.
I will remember the name of the plant eventually, but it eludes me this early in the morning...
Only two days left left in 2008 now. I went to Hil's for dinner last night and came back with some Giant Pumpkin seeds to try to grow at the allotment in 2009!
I was alsp given two bags of Red and White Onion sets too. I will go to the allotment on Wednesday to do some digging over of my borders.
I am thinking ahead to the end of March already for planting.

Looks a little like Kalanchoe?

I love that you rescued that Kalanchoe. I'm always doing that with orphaned and abandoned plants, too.

Happy New Year, David! I wish you all the best for 2009.

Looks like you found a lovely Kalanchoe. Now why would anyone throw out such a great plant? Oh well, their loss is your gain!

Hi Lynn, thanks for the comment.I hope you have a good new year too..

Thanks Barbara, sometimes you know a plant but cannot think of its name.It frustrates you as you cannot remember, and the more you can almost know it the more it eludes you...
Thanks Tina,I rescued a lot of plants from Hampsons mortuary shelf to try and revive them.the Kalancoe is such a pretty plant too with lovely pink flowers.My nursing side came out...
Hi Amy,Thanks for the comment I do not know why they damaged it.I guess they took it from the garage and just threw it on the floor.I agree it is a fabulous plant.It makes people smile when you give it to them.
