Up until recently, I had been feeling disconnected for some time.  As a result, my plants in the greenhouse do not look as good as they could.

Yesterday morning I grabbed my watering can and filled it with water from the rain barrel.  As I began to water my plants back to health, I had a thought:

When you struggle, your plants struggle.  But this is what I love about plants – they will forgive you.  Not only will they forgive you, they will offer beautiful gifts for the love you have given them.

It seems to me that when we let ourselves or other people down, there tends to be resentment.  Sometimes we never forget the damage that has been caused.

However, with plants it really is a clean slate.  Whatever you give to them – they will give back to you.
