Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Believe it or not, I'm talking about a plant.

Griff and I do not have what I would call a green thumb. Witness the fact that our azaleas put out 2 or 3 blooms this year. That was a sad, sad thing. Our neighborhood was filled with yards full of azalea blooms, except for ours. We are pitiful.

However, we have had great success with a few plants. One of them is called Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrows (we shorten it to YTTs). They are called this because of their flowers. When they first bloom, they are dark violet. The next day, they are a paler shade. The following day, they are white. Here is a picture of one of ours.

I love this plant. It will bloom repeatedly throughout the warm weather. Once winter hits, it no longer blooms, and can look kind of scraggly (is that a word?), but it quickly recovers once it warms up.

I'll be posting more pictures of "winners" for the black-thumbed among us. :)
