It started with a challenge from The Nester, this idea to bring a bit of spring inside. So, I cut branches off of spring trees, arranged them in vases. Pronounced some good, some brilliant and some less-than-pretty.
The less-than-pretty I intended to just throw out but when I carried them to the door my mind whispered, Wait until they bloom.
It’s not what I wanted to hear. I have several things taking up space in my life right now that seem stuck in winter. No spring growth. No blooms.
But I put the less-than-pretty back on my craft table, and I check on it every day. The good and the brilliant have long-since lost their blossoms. The less-than-pretty still waits to share its gift.
