P is for pale pink perfection…(a-z challenge)

This is my photo journal of what has turned out to be one of my treasured heritage plants! 

This gem came to be part of my garden treasures via my Dad.  I am almost certain that he gifted me this beautiful flower in the off-season. 

 It wasn’t quite time to plant it in the ground so it was given a temporary home in one of the many clay pots that were stored under the potting table.  Before it could find its way into the garden we sold our home therefore it remained in the pot. 

During the move the pot was cracked and now is missing an upper edge.  No matter the neglect or imperfect pot it seems to be thriving. 

I am hesitant to make any changes at this time.  I have heard that new soil and growing conditions can change the color of the bloom.
