Bromeliad – February 2008
Behind my father’s house, the house where I grew up, there is a shady slope that never had enough sun for plants to thrive – until the day that he planted the first bromeliads. They loved their new home so much that they proliferated and now cover a substantial piece of the slope. I love their exuberant flowers and subtle shading from hot pink to deep purple, and I doubt I will ever be able to see one without thinking of my father and his garden that he loved so much.
