Special Exposure Wednesday: A Flower of Hope
Some people are good with plants. My mother is. My husband is. I am not. But I love plants,so I keep trying. And trying.
So right after the Sabbatical year finishing, as soon as feasible, I planted some blooms. My husband took them all up to the roof (probably for their own good), but I insisted that one be returned. His bloomed magnificently, and mine didn't. I got lots of leaves, but no blooms.Now, several month later, one morning, between the old leaves, a flower arose. Its a different color, but I feel that this flower is a REAL survivor! And for me a symbol of hope: try... try..... and try again.......
