Four years ago my family gave me a beautiful flowering plant (name unknown) for Mother’s Day. The plant has not flowered since, but I have enjoyed seeing its beauty everyday in my living room.
About a week ago, I noticed a little red amongst the green and was excited to see that my pot plant was about to show a little colour.
The flower has unfurled and is small – smaller than the ones the plant had when it was gifted to me. However, I am excited to see that after so long, the plant finally has bloomed.
As I sit on the sofa or at the dining table, I look over and cannot help but smile at its presence.
I am not sure how long the flower will last – or if another one will eventually show. What I do know is that I will enjoy it for the time it is present.
Do you have any flowering pot plants?
