the return of Lillian
My neighbor, Lillian, is coming back. This little lady is about 85 years old and she's a spitfire. She was born and raised here in P'Ville and knows everything about everyone.
She fell and broke her pelvis a few months back and has been in rehab for months. She's one of those types who never sits still so it must have been hard for her to be on bedrest for months on end. My kids (and I) adore her. Since both sets of grandmothers live very far away, she's a stand-in grandma-type. She's a lovely woman and I love hearing her stories. The kids and I were happy to hear that she's returning home in 1 1/2 weeks! She sits on her back porch and we visit her from time to time.
This sunflower is one of many from her fabulous garden. While she's been away, a slew of volunteer kept her garden in tip-top shape. Her sunflowers stand about 8 feet tall. They're HUGE! Of course, now my kids wants sunflowers, too....
Happy day (so far...)
