Adenium obesum - the cycle of life

The first year my Adenium shed all its leaves after a season of blooms, I nearly wept in despair. Bucket-loads of tender loving care revived the plant, and I got another season of blooms. Pests attacked the plant next; with a heavy heart, I had to prune away almost all the branches. The following year, the flowers were back, though diminished in quantity.

This year, I knew just what to expect. When the plant shed all its leaves, I gave it plenty of sunlight and water, but didn't shed any tears. Now, the branches are groaning with bright pink blooms.
