We have a pretty green plant in the corner of our living room, a shade loving plant with large, dark green glossy leaves, which forgives our careless lack of routine and survives beautifully year after year. When it needs water, it gets itself noticed by completely wilting down to the tabletop, and once we add water, it perks up good as new within 12 hours.
I believe it is called a peace lily.
Every once in awhile it sends up a slender stalk with a sophisticated pale green bloom. Last week one began to get close to opening. I was watching each day, happy to see its continued blossoming.
Yesterday the bloom waa gone. Ripped off and discarded under the table by one of our 2 cats or 4 kids.
No peace lily for me this summer. I get it. No peace lily for now.
