About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Desert Rose, not just a weird song by Sting.

Last summer, as many of you know, I went on a plant-hoarding binge and got a whole mess of plants for the apartment. I soon learned that I’m not the greatest plant parent, and the apartment is a really harsh environment for the tropical varieties.

We started off with Bambi the bamboo, that peace lily whose name I can’t remember, Alphonse the aloe vera, and Rosie the desert rose. Bambi died in a horrible car accident (I left him in the car over night and he died, go figure?), and the peace lily shriveled up and nearly died in the dry apartment, kind of like the skin on my hands right now. Anyway. Alphonse and Rosie are still here.

AND. For the first time in over a year, the desert rose actually bloomed!

In the middle of a snowstorm!

Better yet, there are two other blooms on the same stalk. Soon, Rosie will be the prettiest plant at the ball!!
