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!
