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.......

Lovely flower and such a beautiful sentiment. Nature has much to teach us.

One day there will be more. I have a couple of spots that looked like that. Now they are better. I think the birds more or eat the seeds I plant:-)

We all need to believe in the power and possibility of the survival of truth and beauty against all odds...
Thanks.

I feel your pain. Many of my family members have green thumbs, and I joke that I have a black thumb of death for anything plant-like around me. :)
