The shamrock goes to London

I probably have the world’s best-traveled shamrock plant. In the 38+ years of its life (its older than I am!), this plant has lived in Utah, Texas, Iowa, Arizona, Oregon, New York, Virginia, and Washington–and has traveled through most of the states in between. This weekend it ventured into international territory.

I couldn’t move it with the rest of my things (the movers wouldn’t touch it), so I left it in Justin’s good care while I found a place to live.  When I got back to Seattle this weekend, I found it thriving on his dining room table. 

But one doesn’t just waltz onto an international flight with a plant unless one is okay with that plant being confiscated at the border. So I had to take a more, um, shall we say surreptitious method. 

The photos tell the tale:

So now we wait for nature to work it’s magic.  This isn’t the first time I’ve done this to this plant, so I have pretty high confidence of success–but still, fingers crossed!
