Bloom Where You're Planted
|I just finally gave away my 14lb bowling ball |
from high school. I can't bowl at all now,
let alone with that thing!
The pastor used the analogy, "bloom where you're planted." It made me think of all of my "volunteer" plants that somehow end up in my garden, scattered by wind or animal. These are plants that often end up in a place that is not exactly ideal for optimum growth, but do you know what they do? They make the best of the resources available to them, and grow into beautiful flowers or vegetables that add life to my garden and bring joy to me -- even though they may not be the largest blooms or the hardiest plants.
|I found these snap dragons randomly|
growing in my front yard last year. Must've
been a gift from a bird!
|Friday's garden harvest! Fall is fruitful!|
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life. I work in marketing and I'm a sort of Jane of All Trades, interested in all things nature, gardening, cooking, exploring and learning new things. This blog is a conglomeration of my interests, hobbies, life and life lessons. Thanks for stopping by!
