against the odds

i have exactly one plant (since scooby died) and i am ashamed to say it is not doing very well. it is doing so badly, in fact, that i tried to dispose of it a few days ago after a considerable amount of sunlight and watering failed to revive it at all.

i stopped literally in the middle of pitching it into the garbage, because right in the pathetically drooping center was a bright fushia bud. i don't know why or how a bud grew up from the sad little plant, but i fancy that perhaps the leaves sacrificed their nurishment to the little bud, now a little flower.

take a look, it's quite inspiring:
