Summer: Bloom!

We just returned from our Arkansas mission trip yesterday evening. When we got home I was stoked to find out that my flower that I bought last year from our local farmers market finally BLOOMED again! It is the only plant that I have had over the past year to survive, so this was a very exciting sight for me. I honestly thought the plant was slowly dying.

My friends plant-sat for us while we were gone. There was a bad storm that came through that actually knocked the plant onto our cement patio shattering the plant holder. Our friends were nice enough to go buy a new one and replant it for us. I am just so happy to actually see flowers blooming. Here's to another year of surviving! Maybe I'll test my green thumb out some more in the near future!

Glad we could help - and it was definitely NOT blooming when we saw it! That is a beautiful flower!

The funny thing is the bloom dwindled the next day after I took this photo! I'm still glad I got to enjoy it for a couple of days though :)

Wow - I guess it was just a nice "Welcome Home" surprise!
