I feel so blessed to have met and known Paul's grandma, on her mother side, when I got to the US for almost three years now. I had a chance to get to know her well for a little over a year. When she died last year, I made sure we would have something to remind us of her every single day- this flower. We brought this plant from her place after her burial and put it by the window right in front of our kitchen sink. It hasn't stopped blooming since then! It's amazingly healthy even when I forget to water it for many days. It's always got these very pretty pinkish lavender blooms.
