Heart to Heart

Virginia Heartleaf, Hexastylis virginica

Do you recall what the weather was like on January 31, 1980?
I recall quite clearly that we had ten inches of snow on the ground when I awoke that day.
Why would I happen to remember what the weather conditions were on a day some 29 years ago? The answer is simple, it was my wedding day.

Happy Anniversary, Treebeard. I love you.

29 years ago today I gained a younger sister and a wonderful addition to our family. Ratdog and I wish you and Treebeard the happiest of anniversaries.

Love, SIL

Happy Anniversary!
Isn't that plant displayed a wild ginger though, of the asarum species?

Uncle Bear,
Thank you. Together is our favorite way to be :)

It was a lucky day for me - I became part of a great family. Thanks for sharing your baby brother ;) Give Ratdog a kiss for me.


Bob W.,
It's in the same family, but of a different genus. Wild ginger is another common name for this plant, but unlike Asarum canadense, the leaves have no fragrance when crushed.

OK, thanks for the clarigfication. THere is a species of wild ginger, Asarum Shuttleworthi, I believe, that grows in the southeast and looks remarkably similar to that plant. A friend of mine who lived west of Chalep Hill NC had nice woods inhis back yard where I collected some and planted it in my old yard in Fayetteville.

"Congranulations" on your 29th. I can't believe it's been almost 30 years!

We feel all granulated, thank you. It doesn't seem like it's been 29 years.
