Over the past ten years my daughter has given me four different succulents for my office at the library. I am proud to say that one of them is still living. Thriving, in fact, on the ledge at the base of the windows (in its attractive glazed pot which may be getting too small). This plant was a handy thing to point at on Friday afternoon for purposes of testing the settings-changes I was making on the camera as I prepared to leave work and cross town for my first chance in three weeks to get together with the much-missed Mabel Watson Payne. It might have been three years instead of three weeks, considering the way it felt. Rejoice, succulent!
