Quito, Ecuador is a city within a convent on account of its many churches and monasteries… just walk thru the old city and you will agree.



The Fortune plant

We have this so-called Fortune plant in my place that has never flowered before.  The other night I came home and smelled a flower scent, which I mistook to be one of those scented oils we use to neutralize the air in the house after cooking.  I didn’t bother to ask until I smelled it again tonight…and found out that our fortune plant finally flowered after all these years.   It flowers only at night…
