She has finally evolved into the lovely specimen you see below:
Granddaddy Purple is one of those strains that you know deep in your burning heart her love for you is true, she will never let you down.

My name is Petey Wheatstraw, also known as Charles Stevens. I’m an avid marijuana smoker, writer, devoted father and non-profit minion– not necessarily in that order. A Chicago native I’ve lived off and on in the Bay Area since 1996. Seven years ago I finally settled here to capture the changing face of our communities.
