I don’t have a large flower garden, but I did plant six tulip plants last year with the hope that my greenish thumb could keep them alive. This year three came back. Only one of them bloomed. Luckily, it was my favorite that decided to provide us with a nice pop of color.

I also have a beautiful lilac bush tucked into the grove that surrounds our house. While I don’t love the smell (they make me sneeze), I do think they are kind of pretty to look at.
