I was hanging out at Longwood Gardens the other day and snapped this picture of a flower on the verge of blooming. I stood and watched it for quite a bit of time. I think people walking by thought ‘how weird is this guy watching a flower that’s yet to bloom’. What I was thinking while watching was how flowers tend to bloom at just the right time, in just the right place, and just the right conditions.
It occurred to me that flowers have to overcome a lot to bloom (draught, too much water, things that want to eat them, etc). They actually have to be quite persistent. And so do you. So don’t grow tired in doing good things because at just the right time, and in just the right place you’ll find yourself in full bloom.
