Bekie's basil plant. Bekie found this plant in the busy marketplace. It was just a mere seed with a fagile stem when she rescued it and brought it to the sanctury that is our apartment. There she tended to it's plant needs around the clock. It wasn't an easy journey but you can now see the end result - a thriving, healthy mass of leaves and twigs. Bekie now uses the basil plant for flavouring pasta dishes and I drink its sap when thirsty.
