Happy Thanksgiving 2012!!

Here's a pic I snapped today of one of the African violets I gave my favorite uncle Dwight a few years ago... I can't remember the name, but it looks like he's taking pretty good care of this one!

I mean, we've seen way worse specimens from other members of my family..
My theory is that the homebrew wine being made nearby is keeping the plant happy. I know it would keep *me* happy!
Hope everyone had a great holiday and ate way too much! It's the only day of the year where all calories are ZERO, so we all gotta take advantage of that! 


  1. lol ...Loved the photo caption! Now tell the truth: did your hand make an involuntary movement towards grooming the broken stem after taking the picture? :)

  2. Laurie--I only do that to plants in big box stores, not people's personal plants anymore (unless they ask)
    LOL... But yeah it does pain me.

  3. Not to mention that outer row of faded leaves... I keep forgetting to take a soft brush to my local nursery when I visit the AVs there; they don't take care of them, and really how are they supposed to sell plants that are covered in soil and dead flower stalks? (ahem) /rant>

    Do you remember what variety it is? It's cute!


  4. Korina--I don't remember, unfortunately.... I gave him 2 or 3 a coupla Xmasses ago, and this one is the only one that looks good :)
