Scattered Yet Hopeful
I took this picture of one of the bushes that line the front of our house. Back in the spring we dug up the old bushes and planted knew ones. They all dug in an flourished except this one. Within about a week all the leaves turned brown, and then soon after, they all fell off. We thought this bush was a goner for sure.
But we left it in the ground and continued to water it and after a while there were tiny green buds growing. Now there are several. They may be small and scattered but they are hopeful. They give me hope.
This little one isn't as full as the other bushes, but it's hanging in there and fighting back.
I took another photo of this bush, and it may actually be the better photo of the two for this day, but when I saw this one I knew it was the one because of how much it relates to my life at the time. And for me that's what this project is all about.
