A Letter from Irving to his Grandson, Ken~

Ken Sprong, grandson of Irving Dilliard, sent a photocopy of a letter that he received from his grandfather regarding the Jump Up and Kiss Me plant. The letter was written by Irving on July 15, 1984. I am sharing portions of that letter with you, just as it was sent to Ken. What a wonderful look into the magic that this plant held for Irving and his wife. I would like to thank Ken for sharing this correspondence with me. I truly appreciate his thoughtfulness. Click the photo of the Portulaca taken at the D.D. Collins House below to read the letter.
