Ruby Tuesday - Purslane

Purslane, a larger form or Portulaca.  I looked this up on the internet and discovered that numerous forms of this plant are not only edible but commonly used in salads and stews in many parts of the world.

I never knew purslane produced red blossoms. Learned something new today!

BOY IN RUBY

Boy in ruby, why so shy?
You are quite a handsome guy.
There’s no need to hide your face—
In this world you have a place.
Take your ruby shirt away
From your mouth—come out and say,
“I am not a turtle, no,
And my name’s not Yertle, so,
I will be as I was meant—
As my mom says, heaven-sent.”
