Violet's new home
I assumed that an African violet would cheer up my dark, westward-facing bedroom. But even though the leaves are looking good, it has never bloomed in its many years of living on my dresser. There were many strikes against this poor little plant: the pot was decorative, but without drainage, the light is very low, and the temperature is usually chilly. So I transplanted her to a good, serviceable vessel, and have moved her to a warmer, sunnier corner of the house where I hope to see some lovely little flowers soon. We'll have no more shrinking violets here!
