Look what I made!
And when I say *I*, I totally mean *I*. You may credit God or Ceiling Cat or the Dharma Initiative or Joss Whedon or Steve Jobs if you like, but I planted it, I watched something eat it last year before it could bloom, I have visited it every morning sweet-talking it into blooming. And today, it bloomed.
I hope that's a sign of good things. And that all of its little friends (there are 7 more though this is by far the largest for some reason) will join it in blooming soon.
