Strawberries and Other Garden Endeavors

Meanwhile, we received a start of lamb’s ear from a friend a few weeks ago.  The girls and I wrapped it in a bag and carefully brought it home.  We found a spot in the part-shade garden and cleared out a new home for our new plant.  After a gentle planting and dutiful watering, it appears to have taken root.  This led to a great discussion about plant rooting habits and propagation.
