The tulips that got left in a pot after last spring have surprised me! They have come up exceedingly early, and look absolutely gorgeous, come rain or shine. The poor things were just shoved down the side of the house (a sunless, windy place,) and now look at them!
Flowers and plants never cease to amaze me! I can't call it a will to live, because as far as I know, plants don't have a consciousness. But live they are jolly well going to. Sometimes even putting concrete or tarmac over them won't stop them coming up through cracks that seemingly weak little shoots have made.
Maybe I should take a lesson from them! It is so easy to give up, and say well, I can't do this that or the other, I'm stuck with not being able to walk properly, moan, moan, moan! Maybe I should get my weak leg and worm it through difficulties, like the shoots of plants, and just get on with things!
As its Sunday today, thought I'd give myself a 5-minute sermon!
