A little attention and love can bring the fairest flower back to life.
|There is the prettiest rose I have seen in my neighbors yard. When I first spied the plant it was withered and nearly dead by all appearances. Dried out and brown, the life was almost gone from it.
I noticed the plant and gave it a small drink and some loving attention. I would return to it daily, watering and nurturing it with love. I pruned the plant removing old growth and portions that had perished and withered away.
The leaves were the first to respond turning green and began to reach for the light. The bark became softer and full of life. The lush green is noticeable now if one stops to look.
With continued attention a small bud appeared and then bloomed for the world to see. I rejoiced in the growth and new life for the rose. The scent is sweet and powerful and is even more beautiful then ever before.
