April 2021 - Resurrection

Following on from neglected/forlorn and given the time of year (Easter) the theme for this month is any plant brought back to life.

Re: March 2021 - Neglected, forlorn

This Kalanchoe tomentosa looked slightly better before I moved it so that I could photograph it with a black background as the top growth appeared to be upright but in reality it was being supported by the glass it was leaning on.
