I have a love/hate relationship with plants. Don’t get me wrong, I love plants, flowers, trees, and bushes. Flora beautifies the earth all seasons of the year.

When my dad was stationed in Germany for two years, we always made a trip to the Netherlands in the spring. We visited fields of tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils. They were absolutely gorgeous. When we returned to the states and Dad retired, he had multiple orders of bulbs waiting for him in Utah.
