My mother bought a plain looking “corn” plant several years ago from Lowe’s. It wasn’t the most beautiful plant I have even seen, but she said it would add a touch of green to the sun room. It was stuck over in a corner and really drew no attention at all except for being given an occasional glass of water. A few days ago, my husband came in an asked if I had bought some new potpourri. I love fragrance in the home and have been known to buy quite a few, but I hadn’t bought any lately. I denied any knowledge and he just gave me that look. The look that says I know you have, but I can’t prove it. Yesterday we noticed it again, but couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. This morning there was no doubt because the plant had erupted into a mass of white flowers. I have never smelled anything like it, very sweet and unusual, nothing that could be duplicated in a lab. That sneaky little green plant in the corner had surprised us all and added a delightful fragrance to the whole house. I did some research on the internet and found that though they don’t often bloom, but when they do, it is a thing of beauty and the fragrance, amazing. I like to be philosophical about things, so it occurred to me that perhaps it was a gift from the heavens sent just after the official Thanksgiving Holiday to remind us to notice the amazing things happening every day and always, always be thankful.
