But perhaps the sweetest victory, unscented, is the thriving health of Little Frankie, my frankincense sacra plant. He arrived defoliated, looking like a sick little stick in December, and how he's sprouting out all over. Typical of frankincense "trees" he's going to have a weird, twisted shape that is just fine with me. I care about his health, and the wonderful chance to nurture such a rare historical plant.
