To Be Thankful!
On a recent trip to the nursery, I spotted a scrawny looking plant, with barely a few leaves and no flowers, standing all alone at one corner.
When I asked the man, he was surprised that I would be interested. He said most people just walked past without a glance. They probably think that you can't revive a scrawny sick looking plant. But the plant was not sick, it was the only one unsold and then neglected. He told me it's a lovely plant with a lovely bloom. It's called Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow.
I bought it. Not because I have the greenest thumb and could revive the sickest plant. Quite the opposite actually LOL. Would you believe it if I said I felt sorry for the plant? Yes, on the way home I did wonder whether I was out of my mind for buying it. I'd probably drive the plant to an early grave LOL.
But the plant proved me wrong. With a little care and watering it gives me back some blooms and scent, only if I pay attention to it.
Such as it is with life too. A lesson I've learned many a times only to be reminded again. Don't judge a plant by its leaves!
Yesterday it was purple
Tomorrow it becomes white

Note: Just in case you have the plant above and/or you didn't know, the plant is poisonous to dogs. So keep them safely away.
