Finally... a bloom. A magnificent one for sure. With a lovely fragrance too.

I waited since I bought this plant in the spring. It is supposed to be a rapid grower, reaching 5 feet in one season. This one is just about 3 feet tall.

The Blessings of Adult Children

I loved and immensely enjoyed every day with our children when they were little . When I see old photographs of them I passionately want to scoop them out of the picture and squeeze them to pieces. I miss their giggles. I miss braiding their hair. I miss the chatter around the dinner table and so many more things about their childhood.
