Bloom where you’re planted has been a motto I’ve tried to live by and it’s been easy to be happy where I’m living until Addie came along and there’s 10 hours between us!
Sometimes I need to take my own advice.
As I walked outside to put the chickens up, I looked down and found this plant blooming. I stopped and I thought . .
- It’s growing in the middle of the rock driveway and it came up volunteer and managed to survive.
- It gets no water. We go months without rain and I haven’t watered it.
- No one cares that it’s there. No one cares if it would rather be growing somewhere else.
Considering all the stumbling blocks that plant is facing, it’s just as pretty as if it were growing in a flower bed getting lots of pampering.
Seeing that plant blooming there was a lesson I needed!
