     Litle did I dream of seeing our pachira tree in bloom(pachira aquatica, Shaving-brush tree, Cayenne nut).
     Pachira blooming is rare, they say.
     I bought the pachira in a handy flowerpot in 1990, which reached to the ceiling when it was 7 years old.
     Now at 12 years old, it has grown to longer than 4 meters (= 13 feet), having turned at the ceiling.

     At July 9, 2002 10 a.m., I found the flower, however, it fell down after 5 hors from that.
     It means that I could see it by a hairbreadth.
     At once, a miraculous luck visited me.

     I have another secret about pachira.
     The sticky and shining dewdrops appearing on leaves and branches of grown-up pachiras are a little bit sweet honey. Did you know it?

     Some weeks ago, I licked the dewdrops with anxiety whether it is a poison or not, and surprised to find it sweet.

     I was able to confirm it by the internet.

     We cound see more beautiful bloom. That is the next story.
