Out walking with an elderly friend, we spied a lush cactus in a neighbor's window. "Isn't that beautiful." Yes I replied. I could see she wanted a plant for her own apartment.
I having a cactus, at home, in need of a sunny window, and she having a sunny window - it was a heaven's match.
Yesterday when I watched her moving the plant from the coffee table to the window. I asked, "Why do you move the plant from the windowsill at night?"
Her reply, "So it doesn't get cold."
A simple plant brings life and purpose.
