My garden has been not very nice this last month. We have had almost no rain but it's been chilly, especially at night, we are more often than not down to single digits now. I even put the heat on in my art studio yesterday morning, just to take the chill out of the air. And hot baths are welcome, the hotter the better. I noticed this yesterday, which seemed to have bloomed out of nowhere. Lord knows I haven't watered anything in a long time and I thought, how wonderful. And maybe in these days when I've not been feeling too hot emotionally, I could take a page from this pansy's book. Bloom anyway. Bloom one more time, push a little harder to squeeze out the beauty. Stretch without the heat, without the benefit of TLC from my caregiver(s), just bloom dammit.
