Back in 2006 when I first met Ryan’s Gramma McElwain she was raising African Violets in several colors and they were beautiful. She gave me a small plant to bring home from North Carolina. We did not know if it would make the journey by plane well but it seemed to do fine. We have seen it struggle now off and on for the last 8 years but suddenly it is in full bloom now that fall is here. It sits in my south facing kitchen window and apparently is loving this long warm fall. (Yesterday the temps were in the mid 70s) Unusual for us here.
Anyways I had to pull it down to water it and was greeted with this.
Blooms are popping up all over it! Isn’t it pretty?
