My Little Bird Plant

A friend gave me a baby bird plant three months ago. I don't really know its name but it seems it is called Pedilanthus which is also known as "Devil's Backbone"or "Red Bird Plant".

I have to admit that I was quite worried that the plant wouldn't last longer than two months as gardening isn't my forte at all.  My husband does most gardening and it's his garden.

Since it was a gift and my dear friend always checked on it,  I had to remind myself to water it everyday and secretly prayed that it could last longer and grow stronger : )

Therefore, you can imagine how happy I was this morning when I saw this tiny little bird sitting on top of the stem.

It doesn't really look like a bird yet but you can see the form of it. It's a new born baby bird and it isn't red but who cares, I've a little bird on my plant now!!!

How cool! Mom says she has never seen one either. Maybe we can get her one too.

Hope you will show it again when it turns red.

That is a very cool plant. I have not heard of it before. Perhaps as the baby bird grows it will change color.
