Grandmother's Vintage Plant Sedum

This plant is special to me for many reasons: it grows anywhere I plant it, it is drought tolerant, is absolutely care free, it gets pretty lavender/pinkish flowers in late summer, it is insect resistant, it attracts butterfly's and it has been in my family for generations.

I Come To The Garden Alone

While the dew is still on the roses

And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
