Fast forward 5 years and Guy mustered up enough faith in Lucy's gardening abilities to try it again. For her first Mother's Day, Guy gave Lucy a lovely blossoming hibiscus plant. Within about a week, almost all of the leaves had dried up and were falling off... Overwatering? Underwatering? Too much sun? Too little sun? Not enough love? Too much love? Who knows what the problem was. But just this past week, the Phoenix rose from the dirt, and a gorgeous flower bloomed!
I am gardener. Hear me roar!
Here are a few lovely pics of Alice, back from her second morning at daycare. No playing in the sandbox this morning, but they went for a long stroll (i.e. snooze) and she still came home pooped!
