Having lived in a New York City apartment for more than 20 years -- not the same one continuously, though -- I'm always amazed at the true treasures that you can find in the compactor room.
Now I didn't find this little ceramic elephant planter, but Veli did. He somehow sneaked it into the apartment, gave it a thorough scrubbing, wrapped it up and gave it to me as a gift last week. In a small flower pot, he combined a cactus with an African violet, which by the way, bloomed on my birthday, proving that some of the best gifts are absolutely free -- or can even be found in the rubbish!
