The Storm

I saw a flash of light, circled the room once more, took a sidelong glance at the peacock couch, and, seeing a figure, which lay uncomfortably with shivers, began to draw the curtains. The storm lasted well into the night and the urchin, bravely enduring several fits of terror, finally collapsed into a peaceful slumber.

  2. I hope the urchin is feeling better now!

    How amazingly different the Euphorbia obesa is to the ones I am familiar with. I've always liked the sculptural qualities of the plant - this adds another form entirely!

  4. Oh no. Propero, I hope that the weather is better today. The baseball plant is so unique. At first I thought it was an item used to hold sewing pins ;-)
