The Pinwheel Desert Rose


The pinwheel desert rose.

Nine years ago Anne’s mother brought over cuttings from succulents known as pinwheel desert roses which had yet to bloom. She stuck them in the dirt on one side of the driveway under an old oak tree. Today, on Easter, many of these plants have bloomed–they only do this once in a lifetime, dying afterwards. However, the pinwheel succulents have spread easily, filling the entire growing area, so life will go on for years to come. Peace.
