We spent a week in Sorrento, Italy
In the Sorrento City hotel
Our room was on the front
With a balcony
And the window box on the railing held a donkey tail sedum
Which could also be seen from inside the room
Of course, in Italy, it is an outside plant.
And our hotel wasn't the only one with trailing donkey tail sedum plants cascading down the front of the building.
I loved the little cascading sedums
wondering how I could get a start
and knowing that I really could not legally bring a start into the States.
So I didn't!
And what did I find today at
A wee little donkey tail sedum plant!
In the breakfast room
In a tole cache pot
On the sideboard
Where it should be happy
For it will get plenty of sun!
Often my souvenirs of trips are not the stuff that is sold in tourist shops
But rather things that I used or tasted or saw.
Some brought home with me
But others, like this sedum, found here after I returned.
I shall remember our coffee and pastries on the balcony
of the hotel in Sorrento
where a donkey tail sedum was on the railing next to the table
Every time I see this little plant!
Alas, unlike Italy, it has to spend the winter indoors!
But it shall be a great memory of a great trip!
(Oh, and I got one for our friend who went with us -- they also had one on their balcony -- she doesn't know it -- it's a surprise for her!)
I'm joining Cindy at The Heart of Your Home for Amaze Me Monday.
