Ted examined his Burrows Tail. The bulbous new growths on the stems were developing much more quickly than before, when it occupied a space on top of his dresser throughout the winter months. As Spring approached, Ted fertilized the cactus and transplanted it into a larger pot. He never forgot what happened to it last autumn when he left the Burrows Tail outside, forgotten. Most of the plant had turned a translucent yellow color--forcing him to carefully remove the frostbitten sections with a pair of scissors. Now that it was perfectly content in the afternoon sunlight, Ted watched; pleased.
