Buds On Pinball Violet!

Remember a month & 1/2 or so back when I showed you that African violet that belongs to my pinball mentor JR's girlfriend and all the rejuvenation surgery I did on it?

Well last week I was there for open house pinball night and took a look at the plant, and WHOOHOO!! There are 2 flower buds on it now!
BUDS! (You can only see one here, but there are two)
Can't wait to see the flowers open, not even sure what color they'll be!

Sidenote: I also beat my own high score on Dr. Dude.

Let THEM Eat Cake, I'll Just Look...

For those who don't know, I'm on a bit of a weight loss journey right now. I'm tired of being so uncomfortable in my own body, so I'm doing something about it! I walk about 4 miles a day and count all my calories to stay under 1500... It's NOT easy! But I'm proud to say I have lost 20lbs in just over a month by sticking to it.

So when this cake was just posted by someone in my facebook feed, I must admit I got a serious case of the droolies..
zOMG! AFRICAN VIOLET CAKE! (williams-sonoma.com)
Thankfully, just LOOKING is 0 calories, so I'm ok. I shant be actually eating one (hello, $100), nor shall I even attempt making one of my own.

But, oh... just to look.

Sad Violet Is Sad

Check out this sad African violet we spotted at the Hyundai dealership this morning. It was so hard not to groom it up and pluck off those yellow leaves!
The single blossom was all tucked down under the foliage, we did pull that out so it could be displayed before we left it..

Teh Hawt Plant Secks!

Lenny and I just crossed  Sinningia 'Gabriel's Horn' x Sinningia pusilla! Now we're gonna put on a Barry White record and hope they make some babies.
What I'm really hoping is that they'll make some interesting/colorful micros since the mommy is a vibrant two-tone double, and pusilla (a micro) is the daddy!
