Great-Grandma's Flowers

I love that I finally get to tell Cyrus about Great-Grandma's flowers. Of all the bulbs I swiped from my mother-in-law's garden, only this one has produced anything! Hopefully it will make some more bulbs or at least survive for a few years. In the meantime, it makes me so happy to have Helen's special flowers in my kitchen. I never met her, but she spent a lot of time with my husband when he was little and it's nice to have something of hers here.

Ugh, my post vanished. I will try again. I am thrilled that they are booming so gorgeously. Are they in pots? I shared this with Woody. Every year at Easter the flowers bloom and I feel as though Helen has come to visit us. I love the symbolism of resurrection that they emulate so beautifully. Congratulations on your success!
