Sensitivity Plant

I bought a sensitivity plant at the grocery store last week.  It reminds me of my grandma (on my Mom’s side).  When I was little and we went to visit, she used to take the plant down from the windowsill and let me touch it.  After living together for a week now, I can say that this definitely rivals having a dog — in the sense that at least this is a plant that you can interact with a little.
