A Christmas Miracle

You may recall, from previous posts, Mr. Harriet and Mr. Pendleton, Harriet’s two fish who live in the pot of our lotus plant. At a certain point Mr. Harriet seemed to disappear – maybe a bird ate him, maybe he flew away – and then Mr. Pendleton also disappeared – same issues – but somehow there are now four smaller fish. Also the lotus plant is somehow alive, which is against all reason. But yesterday I cut off a wilted leaf to prettify things for Christmas, and the cut stem kept miraculously bubbling all day, as you can see in this video. Mr. Harriet and Mr. Pendleton’s successors (children?) also make appearances.

One thought on “A Christmas Miracle

  1. For those of you who have been asking: the names of the new fish are, in accordance with half-remembered Mendelian genetics, Mr. Harriet Harriet, Mr. Harriet Pendleton, Mr. Pendleton Harriet, and Mr. Pendleton Pendleton. I don’t know which is which.
