One Reason I Love Egypt


This is a picture of a blue sky behind thirty foot tall date palms and rubber trees. Nothing terribly exciting, but I remember being a grad student in Canada caring gently for a variety of indoor plants, including some palms and small rubber trees, to give me some green through the cold white winter. I never imagined that they could grow so big in a friendlier climate.

Mazbut, and we transplants do seem to grow and bloom where we are planted.
Didn't know you had rubber trees.

Same thing with me and orchids. When I was in Alberta it was too dry even in the bathroom. Here in Hong Kong they keep blooming and blooming. I have 8 which keep producing, much to the dismay of my son - who thinks it's excessive, and to me - who wants to buy more as soon as they go dormant.
