Needy plant

This plant needs more attention than any animal pet I have ever owned.

Seven hours ago it’s all, “oh I’m wilting, oh help me.”

Then I give it some water, and six hours later it’s much improved.

And then another hour later it’s in perfect condition again.

It was the same thing yesterday. And it will probably be the same thing tomorrow.

The person who gave it to me said it only needs water once a week. Thanks, Katsuyo-san!

It’s like the person who gave me my dog, Tao, so many years ago and promised, “Don’t worry he won’t even grow to be twice the size.”

 

Help me! I'm wilting! Water!

Help me! I’m wilting! Water!

 

Ah, feeling a bit better now.

Ah, feeling a bit better now.

 

All better now! I'll call you when I need you.

All better now! I’ll call you when I need you.

Mon is home again

I’m just back from the Eko-in where I picked up Mon’s urn. So she is home again, resting next to Hao and Tao.

The locker where Mon's urn was kept, waiting to be picked up. Some people leave their pets there indefinitely.
