Sweet! I LOVE that about gardening! We have moved all over the south since we were married over 33 years ago and with every yard I brought plants from friends that I cherished. However, an F4 tornado (I say it was an F5!) took away everything back in 2001 so now I've started over in FL. I love to get plants and flowers from others because everytime they bloom you think about them as I'm sure you do with your grandparents! Enjoy!

The Clematis was actually a transplant from my grandma's not a start, I worded it wrong. I wasn't sure if it would live after transplanting it but it is doing great!

Wow! You started a Clematis! They look great!

That is a wonderful way to start a new garden or add to an existing garden. I call these plants 'PASS-ALONGS'. And you will be passing them to your kids one day. Smiles, Lark
