I know this is not technically about J, but I have to share...
The year Mr. M & I moved into our house, my grandmother P passed away. I've always loved lilac bushes, and as a way to remember her, my parents dug up some of her bushes for me to transplant.
For that summer, and the next three summers, I've been so worried they wouldn't make it. That they would never bloom.
This summer, I'm relieved and happy to share... They are blooming!
