Hot Lips lives on

I can't believe it. Hot Lips has bloomed again. I saw the beginnings of buds on a really thin stem but thought there was no way it would really bloom again.
And we have had so much rain the past week that any possible hope I felt had been washed away.
But today she bloomed and has another bud waiting to open, possibly tomorrow. The stem is so thin that the bloom just droops way down. And the blossom isn't quite as spectacular as in the summer. But still, it is a beautiful blossom.
I think probably this is the end of her season. I am going to split the plant into two, but I have to wait until I am REALLY sure she is through for the year. Who knows, that might be February!
