New additions

So we got the teenaged daughter graduated from high school a week ago. Then we did the 10 p.m. to 2 am. shift at the subsequent Project Graduation party. Everything went great, and Lindsey looked beautiful.

Three days later, she moved out. I know that's the normal course of life...children must fledge. But it came earlier than we expected and if we'd had our druthers, we wouldn't have chosen the route she took. But that's not our choice.

On the rebound, we visited my mother in Boerne last Monday. After a late lunch, she gave us directions to Hill Country African Violets and Nursery, where we picked up a few new additions...

Salvia greggi 'Salmon'

Mexican mint marigold DIED
Tagetes lucida

Salvia farinacea

Life goes on. Plants die. New ones get established. That's the normal way of things, too.

God bless you, Lindsey. We love you.
