This African Violet was given to me several months ago by my sister-in-law Deleta. I just love plants as gifts. Giving them and receiving them is a special sort of sweetness, assuming the giver and the givee have room, of course. Giving plants is a gift of "life". I thoroughly enjoy those plants which were traditional to previous generations and/or have long histories in families. All those blooms just make me smile. Thanks, Deleta.
