A few weeks ago, I received a great surprise in the mail. The boys were so excited because it came in this HUGE box…
I LOVE IT!!! It’s so beautful, and fits in with any outside decor.
And it’s tough. (But I’ll get to that in a minute.)
First, I purchased some flowers to plant, and prepared my area.
Then, I got to work and it turned out wonderfully! I was so excited about my planter!
It was growing to well, and the flowers were really taking off…and then the storm hit. I thought for sure that my beautiful little planter would be toast, gone with the wind, vanished into thin air. For pete’s sake, the wall to our shop was caved in, how could a little plant stand stay put???
But it did.
The flowers were a little rough around the edges, but they’re coming back. My precious little planter withstood winds that our great cottonwoods couldn’t stand up to…and it taught me a lesson.
Sometimes in life, it’s not the largest, strongest that survive. And sometimes amid destruction, you can find a little beauty.
