From the plant that we saw a few days ago, the jade begins with but a small blossom about 1/2 inch (approx. 12.7mm) diameter!
These plants can grow quite large but it takes a long time....I will display an image of an old plant in an upcoming post.
NOTE TO ALL - I would like to thank everyone for your wonderful comments on my blog. I apologize for the lack of responses from me during this time...We have been in California visiting our son and his family...we should be returning to Seattle soon... Thank You;-)

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
