Flowers are amazing.
As Spring approaches and the first flowers of the season are out, it’s hard not to wonder at their sophistication.
They reach up and face the sun in an attempt to maximise their potential. They become open, literally, to possibilities. When night draws in and growth is no longer fed by the nourishing sunlight, they close and bow their heads, patiently waiting for the next surge of life expanding light and warmth.
They are hugely diverse, bright, colourful in a range of sizes. All are welcome in the garden.
We could learn so much.
