François! NOOOO!!!!


He grew too much for his own good...

He couldn't support his own weight...

Not even my pencil-turned-brace solutions could help...


Until...



The other arm didn't last much longer. And he was this close to blooming beautifully!!!



I...I...

I'm sorry, François. I tried to take good care of you, to keep you watered, to keep you growing. In the end, I may have killed you.

My condolences for your loss. Or is it a loss? Can Fancois be saved by topping his growth and keeping his roots the base plant? How about some CPR? (Critical Plant Repair)

My friend, I'm sorry to hear the loss of your...uh, what the hell is he. He's a plant, but you seem rather upset, more like he's your son.

My sympathies...To quote the late Capt. Kirk:

"We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human."
