Almost Open

My little African Violet is so forgiving. She sits on my bathroom counter and never judges. I sometimes let her drink the last sips of my cold tea, and otherwise forget to water her altogether. I don't pluck her old leaves often enough, her container gets dusty, and I occasionally spit on her when I'm brushing my teeth.

Even after my neglect, she still loves me.

    And I SO need an African Violet, maybe I could actually keep that kind of plant alive! :)
