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.)
