Flowering

...and the answer is: yes.


The ancient, snarled rosebush in my side yard is, at this very moment, positively burgeoning with huge pink flowers waving eight feet high in a cool afternoon breeze. It's really rather breathtaking.

Maybe it's because I'm currently reading a book on self-esteem, but this plant is, for me, incontrovertible proof that what we see on the outside is far too often a poor indicator of what's going on inwardly. This makes me happy.
