View From Outside

Noticed on my way to work that the bonsai natal plum (Carissa macrocarpa A. DC.) in the window of my office has produced three flowers. I was given this plant by Jion Susan Postal (see Jion Susan Postal) several years ago and it is very special to me. The somewhat wilted-looking Gingko biloba seedling in the red pot to the right was dug up in my back yard. It is on a cross section of a large tea tree (Camillea sinensis (L.) Kuntze) from Southwestern China (thx, Selena), and the little brass Buddha sitting to the right of the Gingko is from Angkor Thom. The paper cutout of the Chinese character (thx, Meng-Hsueh) at the upper left means something auspicious like 'good luck", or "prosperity", or "equanimity". Can't remember, actually. Was told to put it on the window as a welcome to guests. [NOTE: Go here to see what it looks like—or used to look like—from the inside].
