well, mildred finally gave up the ghost..we were all very sad, but i just don't seem to be able to keep ferns in the manner to which they have so obviously become accustomed (i had another tiny fern called barry, and he died a short while ago as well..)..

bearing this in mind, i decided not to get another fern to replace her..i'm not sure what i ended up getting, but she's very lovely in any case, and i have named her - in what i feel is a rather fitting tribute - maud (those of you who still don't appreciate these references, please see me after class in my office)..
