where there's a will, there's a way.



I'm striving to achieve the same persistence as this lovely rhodedendron, who decided that the sun was sunnier, the skies more blue, the grass much greener on the other side of the fence. The branch found its way there, some how, some way ... discovering that slim opening between the rigid confines and easing its way through. It wasn't an easy task, but it was accomplished.

And now that branch blooms. And so will I.

And I have every confidence that your bloomin' blossoms on the other side of the french will be as exquisite as those of your gently nurtured usa stray, Kimberlee!

Every living thing strives to survive and be happy. Like the flower, you will blossom. Maybe Plato was right ( I like to read philosophy ) , a humans goal in life should be to be good and therefore happy.

It is getting close isn't it! Can you belive it?!

You are very much in exactly the same place as I, we like the same things from what I gather from your blog and your flower peeking through the fence speaks to me as well.....
