Its Stems
Its Stems

These are the stems that support that plant.  They are a wonder in themselves.  All dotted and stripey.  Looking at them this closely blurs them and makes them more mysterious.

This plant was a few inches high a year ago.  Now there is at least 18 inches of growth, culminating in those intense red blossoms of yesterday’s post.

I would guess I have given it enough water.  The plants get a lot of water that would have gone down the drain in the days before drought and conservation.  Now leftover water and rinse water and ‘stale’ or warm bottled water, plastic-y water — all go to the plants. This one especially seems to say thank you.
