A Lesson In Determination

I’m skipping Windowpane Wednesday this week in order to bring you something I find pretty amazing.

Yesterday, as I walked through our garage, something in our garden cart caught my eye.

This time of year, especially, that  garden cart in our garage seems to be a ‘catch-all’: Costco size packages of paper products, a Christmas flag that hasn’t yet made it to the closet, a piece of wood that may be a future painting project…

BUT, also in there is a Gerbera daisy.

Let me tell you about that little plant: I brought it in before the first frost, sometime around the middle of November, I’m guessing.

And, sad to say, I haven’t watered it since then (obvious by the dead leaves). And it was nowhere near a window to get any natural light.

But, there it was, just blooming away.

So I did what I should have been doing all along: watered it and placed it by the window for some light.

It brings to mind one of my favorite quotes:

“Bloom where you’re planted.”

    Location, Location and a little fairy dust and you have a beautiful survivor!
    Very interesting. This has happened a couple of times in your garage. Maybe start all your plants there, it is where the magic takes place!
