Bradley was a handsome twenty year old who had every opportunity to grow into a mature successful adult, but he and some high school friends chose drugs for fun. He and several of them are now dead from an addiction to heroin. He was in treatment and had serious counseling, but couldn't overcome the problem. He is now at peace with God. We buried him in Rochester, Michigan Wednesday morning, July 15,2009. There are hundreds of thousands of victims waiting for their turn to die from drugs. Lets pray for all of them.
I saved this bulb from the previous year and it didn't bloom this winter when all the other bulbs put on their magnificent show. I put it on the plant rack on the back porch. Now in July, it decided to bloom for the Madonna and the Christ Child. You'll notice the garlic blooms in the vase.
