Christmas Miracle

My jade plant is blooming. A rose in December may be possible in England, but it stands the same chances in northern Pennsylvania as a snowball in hell. And here, even less likely--the indoor blooming jade plant. This thing is almost 5 feet tall and probably outweighs me, which explains why it has not left its south-facing window in years. It was started by a cat, now deceased, who, during her kitten rampages around the house, took a cutting from the plant of my friend, now deceased. Happy New Year, friends and pets on both sides of the great divide.


  1. I think I see a Holy visage in the glass? no?
    Nice. Best to you in 2015.

  2. My jade has never blossomed, south facing Alberta window and all. Huh.

    Miss your house


  3. Aww, wish you and your brood were coming down with the Mumsy in a few days!
