We are as “free as the birds” and have begun our northern migration having left Port Isabel and arrived in Wylie, TX where our daughter and family live.
Lori had decided not to tell her children we were coming in case there were problems because it is easier to deal with the surprise than with disappointment. Her decision, so we decided to surprise her as well. After several calls where we stated “We plan to be there by Saturday” we showed up Thursday outside Jade’s school where they were having a meeting. SURPRISE!
It is really fun to see the surprise and joy on faces when people are happy to see you!
Linda had planted a couple of plants before we left. They should do well over the summer and then will grow into quite huge plants over time. The one on the left is a Poinsettia and the other is a Hibiscus. The bloom is almost six inches across. We also have four palm trees on our lot and have plans for more flowers next year.
Time to go, grandkids are waiting.
