Lately, I've been inspired by this azalea bush sitting by our driveway -
I potted this plant 2 years ago, and last year it produced no flowers. All year it looked like a dead stick bush. I kept intending to replace it but never got around to it. It was a symbol of my failure as a gardener. Then, to my surprise it decided to bloom this month!
This bush reminds me that all things can change, grow, and be renewed. Now, it is a symbol of hope. (Plus, I love it when a task gets crossed off my list.)
