Even though the Emancipation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, 
it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control.  As a result, 
in the westernmost Confederate state of Texas, enslaved people would not be free 
until much later.  Freedom finally came on June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas.  The army announced that the more than 250,000 
enslaved black people in the state, were free by executive decree. 
This day came to be known as "Juneteenth," by the newly freed people in Texas.

This bush was passed to us from Youngest's house a few weeks ago.  It was almost bare, but for some leaves and rather unhappy there in the shade.  We set it in the sun and it blossomed out!  Can't wait to see it next year...!
