"It takes a long time to grow an old friend."

Happily, an old friend and AV Mentor accepted my long overdue note in the spirit it was intended. What began to feel like an unforgivable absence was gracefully forgiven.

AND African Violets filled my mailbox!

Actually, the mail lady arrived finally at 4:52 p.m. and delivered the box straight into my waiting arms. The box had been on the floor next to her feet and the bottom was red hot. I feared the worst as I raced to the house with my precious cargo. So much so that blog photos I imagined of the new arrivals were forgotten.

Plants needed to get out!

Affectionately referred to as Area 51. 
9/14/12 total leaf count came to fifty-one.
Anyone care to refresh our memory about the Golden Rule? :)
I challenge you to reach out to someone you owe a note or a phone call and renew your spirit. Don't take friends for granted.

And don't be afraid a friendship can't be mended, so you don't try. 
It may be just the boost you both need. 
I feel blessed! ♥

    E> that's a heart!
    Don't know how to add a tear!
    I had been 'plodding' along with my violets.. learning to be sensible, and practical. My violets have benefited, but I had lost most of my excitement. I was back to just me and those plants that always needed watering!
    One day, I saw a HELLO :) in my inbox! NEAT!
    Since, it's been an adventure and a shot in the arm and HEAD and HEART to talk violets with Laurie!!!!
