One Deep Breath


Burgeoning blossoms
Hastily grow

It's probably not a coincidence that I plant lots of these in my garden. For one thing, they're easy to grow, and gardening does not come naturally to me. But more likely, it's because these particular flowers and I are so much alike. We're always anxious to grow quickly and become better and more beautiful as fast as possible. Always in a hurry, we are. Always impatiens...
