My Coleus


Here is my plant, my Coleus plant, growing up from the ashes like a Fenix, l’oiseau de feu, a pontiac firebird, like in Stravinsky’s Firebird Ballet in which Vaslav Nijinsky did not dance at all in any way even if I previously thought he might have.  As I already stated, the plant is a cutting from the dying roots and shoots you see before you, contained in the pot.  I put about 5 different cuttings in the soil, and this is the only one that took root.  Hooray.

You are good at plants.

Thank you. You don't suppose it has anything to do with my working in a nursery for the past 3 years do you?

That might factor into it, but maybe you just know how to love plants.
