The Green Lily

 This alocasia has the most wonderful scent.
It reminds me of my mother who always had a plant in her garden.
It burns off with the frosts in winter but is laways in flower through mid to late summer and now into autumn.The perfume wafts through the whole house.
And it is green with great big leaves, although I picked the smallest I could find to bring inside.
Showers and wind and a lot cooler today, I just wish the showers would keep on but we are due for a couple of warm days later in the week, and then a promise of more showers.

Love your sketch, but I kill alocasia! Sadly. :( Glad it does well there. I cannot figure out the best situation for it here.
Enjoy the rain, if you can!
