We monitored their progress daily, aware that the tentative closing date on the house is drawing near. First we saw the tips of plants peeking above the dirt, then tiny leaves emerging, and finally buds forming and maturing. Sunday night we had freezing rain and woke up yesterday to find ice temporarily hindering the opening of the first flower, but later in the day we had a glorious bloom, and, by the looks of things, we'll see several more before we go.
Even though we're leaving them behind for someone else to enjoy, we've had the pleasure of seeing at least part of our hard work pay off.
