I got up out of bed to take a photo - it was a long day and my camera was not in my hands. This plant holds significance for me. When my former stepson was about five years old, he went to an African violet show with me and his father. He wanted to get a plant for me and this was the variety he picked. It's a chimera - striped - which means it's much more expensive than the average violet. His father was quite surprised when he paid the bill - expecting to pay about $5, and getting charged at least $15 :-D

I got it back into my collection last year and am very happy to have it again. It, too, is getting ready for show.
