Man Slaughteress or Murderess

I have had a lovely african violet for around 12 years or so. It has the most becoming dark purple blossoms and sweet furry leaves. I loved that plant, to death. Here you can see it behind the bunny.
We have finally had some sun so I took it outside to add some color and background to my shop photos. Just a subtle little peek of purple. Ahhhh Except I forgot to take it back inside with me. It stayed out all night long. It froze to death while I was snug in my bed. I swear it wasn't murder, I loved that plant.

Here's how it looks now. Not so good. RIP 12 year old beloved african violet plant.
The other night I was getting ready for bed and my Drew kept hanging around me. I was sure he was going to flash me or something. Behind him I noticed a flash of gorgeous purple. Ahhhhh

I won't man slaughter this one.
probably

The best thing would be to get a fake one. Some of those are really quite realistic these days...

Good job Drew! I had 2 awesome African violets and lost them because my part of the world has mo sun. :o(

I have to admit to being a little worried when you said you saw a flash of purple behind him. I was either going to recomend a good doctor or a good lube.

I can't believe you kept a plant alive for twelve years. I didn't even know potted plants lived that long. You're a plant god.
