Old plant friend

I have had this pelargonium for twenty(?) years. It has survived neglect (I am ashamed to admit) and meanness (someone once dropped it into the deep end of a swimming pool). There are times of the year when it looks a bit peaky, mostly in our wussy winter. Bits of it have died and when I cut them off, new bits take their place. If it continues to get the right amount of light, water and food, one wonders if it will be around for another twenty years.
