It was my birthday on Friday. I woke up that morning to see that my mum's potted plant, which I've been caring for since she died earlier this year, had flowered for the first time in months.
I was given some lovely things for my birthday, but I think this bloom was my best birthday present. I was so moved, it made me cry.
BTW - I have no idea what the plant is - it has quite thick leaves and petals, likes sun and a lot of water. If you recognise it, do leave a comment.
