pretty! is that my jade plant hiding out in the corner?
yes. I was hoping you wouldn't notice, bc it turns out that your beautiful jade plant isn't much of a match for the pride of lions we thought were cute, brought home, and named "Franc" and "Kina." It's currently something like 1/3 of the big and vibrant plant it was, but I hope to revive it to its former glory -- and hide it 2/3 of the way behind the lamp (which is great and also from you) until then.
