Down at the Crossroads

June 24, 2010

18 months ago I posted a blog about a small red plant that miraculously came back from the dead after I’d given up on it and thrown it away. Since then it’s gone from strength to strength, I’ve even split it into 5 plant pots, as it was growing so fast!

I’m at a cross roads again in my life, nothing too serious… but when I looked at that plant this morning sitting on my shelf,  I know it’s something I can overcome and sort out, I just need to focus… as the saying goes, “If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude”

Oh and if anyone knows what this plant is called, please let me know as it’s a complete mystery to me…

UPDATE: thanks to Jose pointing me in the right direction I have now tracked it down as oxalis triangularis there’s even a timelapse video showing how the leaves open and close everyday
