Full of Life

We’ve returned from laying Grandma to rest in San Antonio, and it feels like we should focus on the new life all around us right now. So, since I’ve been telling everyone all about how her spirit seems to have settled in our houseplants, I thought some more photos were in order…

Here's the orchid she taught us to care for. This is the second time Trent has successfully re-bloomed it in the now 2.5 years it's been alive in our house!

Here's the rabbit's foot fern we really did take out to compost the day before she died. It's now experiencing the MOST captivating rebirth from the "feet" up.

This is the new mystery hanging plant we just bought for our front porch. It's been in perpetual bloom for two weeks now.

Though we were surrounded by family, our San Antonio trip was tough – emotionally draining. We’re happy to be back home and, now that we are, our sadness is fading and turning into excitement for spring.

We can’t wait to see what Dorothy does to my rose bushes.
