Day 93: African Violets
Something about African Violets that is so comforting. I have four plants in the window near where I wash dishes. These plants virtually take care of themselves since I've discovered "The Violets Pot". This ingenious ceramic pot has it worked out such that the pot itself waters the plant just right. The inner pot which holds the plant and the dirt is of a porous clay which sucks the water from the well. The inner pot sits in the outer pot which is ceramic and glazed. All I need to do is keep the pot filled with the right amount of water. I never water from above. The fuzzy leaves don't like water. Now in July all of the four plants are blossoming at once. Lovely don't you think?
