It was given to me by my dear friend Kate last year, maybe the year before… it has previously had a few flowers, but right now it is flowering like there will be no winter next year. It has almost 20 open flowers, a number of nearly-open buds – which is annoying, since I won’t get to see them for a few weeks – and a few very small buds, which will hopefully only open after I get back. It’s very lovely… and I have been amusing everyone who comes to visit by displaying it proudly. I brought it in from the window just so I could see it easily, and show it off.
