New Growth!

Good morning, Mintdom

spring 2013I have lived in my house for over four years now. Each spring I regret that I had not planted bulbs the fall before. I think, if only I planted bulbs last fall, I could be picking daffodils. Finally, last fall, I went to the store, bought bulbs and a bulb planter and planted 17 daffodil bulbs. The other day, I was getting into my car for work, I looked down, and I saw the most beautiful sight. I saw the beginnings of my little daffodils coming up! I cannot tell you how happy I was to see the new growth.

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.” – Napoleon Hill

I would not say that planting bulbs was really struggle; however, I see that the growth usually comes at a price before you reap the rewards. It cost time to plan the little garden. It cost to buy the bulbs. It cost physical labor to plant and water the bulbs. None of those costs is very high and not only that, but daffodils multiply and therefore the rewards will increase each year.

The new growth inspires me and teaches me a lesson. Growth comes with a price and the rewards are GREAT!

How does your garden grow?

AffirMINTion: I love to learn and there are lessons all around me.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

    Can’t wait to see your daffodils in full bloom! Can’t wait for Spring! Of course patience is not my strong suit.

    Are you allowed to plant stuff or are you being a rebel?
