A happy plant

A little over a month ago I bought a little plant at the drug store. It was one of those little potted things that looked kind of sad with broken stems but It was a plant I have wanted for a while and it was cheap soooooooooo I bought it.
Well, I planted it in pot and found a spot to put it and look at it now!

Well, so okay, it is one of the easiest plants to grow and it is very aggressive but you have to admit this Wandering Jew is pretty with it purple under leaves...
and what a little gift, this bloom....

I call this a happy plant.

One of my classrooms had a wall of southerly windows, and I had many plants on the ledge - one was the Wandering Jew. It thrived in the sunshine, as did a Jade Plant. I miss those windows.

I have some of this in my side yard. A friend cut some off hers and told me to just 'throw it in the flower bed - it will grow!' And so it did. I think she called it Wandering Jew.

It is not Wandering Jew as I thought for so many years but is called Purple Heart. It makes a great ground cover outside and I have it in front of my pink rose bushes. Peace
