The small adenium (desert rose) flowered, and I am really happy with it. It took this plant a year to get itself together, but what a fantastic show it is now.

Happy 4th birthday Mahmood’s Den!
update 1: If you want to dig deeper and follow the progress and evolution of Mahmood’s Den, you might want to have a look at the Wayback Machine, the first it records my site is in September 2001 which shows the entries going back to 4 July 2001!
Like everyone else I think, I didn’t have my own domain when I first started. I had a site on Geocities I think, and called the site then “Kick the Dog”! You can see that I resurrected that name briefly in 2002 but reverted back to Mahmood’s Den soon thereafter.
