THE PLANT THAT NEVER STOPS GIVING   Leave a comment

I MISS YOU DEAR FLOHARD TO BELIEVE YOU DIED 32 YEARS AGO TODAY

55 years ago, when I was living on Miami Beach, the woman who showed me what unconditional love was, Flo, gave me a Mexican pot that she had bought on her honeymoon during her first marriage, and planted an aloe pup in it. That pot has been with me ever since and can’t even imagine how many pups have been given away or replanted in other pots of mine over the years.

I noticed the other day that the plant on the right was too huge for the pot which started to tip over so I got to work today and did some repotting and replanting making 5 new potted plants for a total of 7 aloe plants all related having started from the mother plant all those years ago.

Miss you Flo but see you everytime I look around my apartment!
