A few months ago my mom sent me an arrangement of Protea. They are
ancient-on-the-evolutionary-tree tropical flowers with huge spiky-leafed
heads that open into balls of long fuzzy somethings. They last forever
as cut flowers. The arrangement also had some curly willow in it. I have
been keeping it on the dining room table and I only added water once.
The vase is clear so I can see that the water is now dark brown. About a
week ago I noticed that the curly willow was growing roots and leaves. I am going to plant it outside.
