Plants

Something strange is happening to my plants. They have an unusual condition where they're growing taller and fuller - and even blooming. With a little research, I have figured out that they are "thriving," which is much different than the condition of "dying" that I had previously seen with almost all of my plants.
 The other day my mom called and asked if I wouldn't mind giving her back her African violet flower pot when she visits. I said, "Sure, but what am I going to do with the plant?"

She laughed and asked, "You mean it's still alive?!"

Even my own mother, who has cheered me on to do a number of near-impossible things in life, still can't believe that I could keep a simple house plant alive. Truthfully, neither can I.

I'm not sure what I did to overcome my plant-killer instincts, but I'm posting the pictures as proof before the plants change their mind.

LoL! They're beautiful! WoW!

I had to stop by when I saw the name Tootie... I went to school w/ a girl that was nicknamed Tootie. She was a HOOT! She had LOOONG fingernails & I always used to ask how she could stand such long nails... she'd just laugh & say that she just simply loved them. =)
