It's back

June 19th will be the one year anniversary of moving into my Townhouse. Yes, I have almost survived a year living in the hood. I really do love this area and "most" of my neighbors. A few weekends after I moved in last year, my parents and I took a field trip to good ol' Lowes! My mom has a pretty good green thumb and wanted to help plant some flowers. I have to say that I do not share her green thumb abilities. Mine is more of a brown color...when I look at the plants, they begin to die. But I was determined to add a little life to my back patio. My mom bought and planted a lily that day. I continued to water it after it bloomed in hopes it would come back a year later.

I am happy to report that the lily survived a whole year!!! It is gorgeous if I do say so myself. I might just have a green thumb after all...
