About two years ago, a friend of mine gave me a small plant called “African Violet”. I always wanted to have that plant in my home. So, I try to take care of it. In the course of taking care, I touched the plant so much that I almost kill it. Then I decided not to touch the plant too much, however, I gave it enough light and water to make it alive. To my surprise, it started to grow. Every time, I watched the plant and counted the leaves (When I got the plant it has tiny three leaves and now it has many). I consulted with others about this plant. One person told me that she flowered African Violet in three months. But mine, it has already passed more than a year and hasn’t grown enough to give flower. I was little bit sad but I was not disappointed. With the knock of summer, this year, my hope raise high seeing my plant giving its buds. Finally, it gave a beautiful violet flower a couple of day ago. In my home, so many flowers blooms and dies each year but this bloom has a special place in my heart and mind. This bloom is never going to die because I framed it in my camera. Even when it is not there I can see the bloom.
It always refreshes my mind and I think this is the most beautiful gift I ever had.
