Five Years Ago.....

Hi everyone,

Today marks 5 years since my carnosa's namesake, Nikki, passed away in a car crash. All of us that knew her miss her greatly. I smile when I look at my carnosa and will be overjoyed when she finally produces her first blooms :-).

I hope you are having beautiful weather for her anniversary. I'm sure you will see blooms soon.

XO to you too, Mary! :)

GG, the funny thing is Nikki loved the rain and it was nice yesterday and today it's raining. I also find it odd that my fungii decided to bloom at this time of year too. Maybe it's a sign ;-).

Brad: You are definitely a very special guy. I believe that the energy of beloved people, who have gone on before, stays around you.

Hey, that's deep, isn't it?? LOL!! Don't ever change Brad.

That is great that Nikki still has an earthly presence in a plant. I have just recently named one of my plants after a client I worked with that died just last month. It doesn't take all the grief away, but watching the new plant do well is great!
