Things Are Changing

On April 2nd, I bought my second-ever jade plant, Ralph. He's named for a contemporary of Walt's favorite poet and namesake: Ralph Waldo Emerson. This makes sense because he's basically a Waldo anyways, maybe just because of the similarity to Walt. So far I've read him one Emerson essay and boy oh boy was it boring. It's strange how quickly you can tell the difference between baby plants - Walt was shy, creative, and gay, while Ralph is bookish, somewhat athletic, and as straight as a slingshot.

Here's your new jade, Ralph:

And here's your old friend Walt, who was growing so much:

Atta boy, Walt!
