For the assignment called Home, I’ll show you some trees and flowers that grow outside my apartment building. These were taken during last week’s snowstorm, so I’m asking you to look beyond the snow-covered branches and to see their potential. A home is a place where things grow, not simply live, and where potential is nourished so that it may blossom.

I’m pretty sure these bushes have little white flowers in the spring. I’ll keep an eye out. Won’t be long now.
