Unexpected Blooms

Look what's blooming at my house! My prayer plant (Maranta sp.) sent up a slender spike with pointy buds that are just beginning to open. Am I doing something especially right, or do they always bloom? More likely, I've usually done something wrong. At any rate, I've never had one bloom before. My plant sits in a southwest window with this African violet that is also showing some color.

The weather this week is in a word—AWFUL—unless you like gray and cold, but houseplants still save the day. How are things where you are?
