I didn't see this coming

One day in October of 2014, I was visiting a new friend from church. We are each assigned women to
look after in our ward. A monthly visit or call to see how they are doing and make sure they are okay.

So on that October afternoon as I was leaving this woman's home I noticed she had just put in some
new plants. I was impressed and asked her the names of her plants, and even took a quick picture of
them. I was thinking of perhaps planting them in my own yard. Here is that picture from Oct 2014.

Fast forward 19 months later and this same house goes up for sale. 
We jumped on it (not just because of the plants) and bought it. 

Today we moved in. 
And my have these plants grown!

I just had no idea back then, no clue whatsoever, that one day this home would be ours. 

Life is so interesting and full of surprises. That's one thing we can count on.

Not the easiest day of my life, but as far as moves go, not too bad.

Are there words to describe this? What are the odds? These are lovely plants and I'm glad they not only survived, but flourished, to welcome you to your new home.
I must say that this post should come with a warning to have tissues nearby. I was all smiles until I got to the last photo. Then the tears came. Why is it so hard to say goodbye to a home I never was physically in!?! pjc
