Sunday, 01 June 2008 - One happy plant

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for one happy plant.

Last summer, I planted one glaucium grandiflorum in the backyard garden. It didn't bloom.

This year, after our bitter cold winter, it is flourishing.

At the recent plant sale, a master gardener told me that this plant, if happy, will delight the world with many gorgeous, poppy-like blooms. I proudly admitted that I have one very happy plant sporting a score or more of buds.

This morning, I noticed the first bloom. And, yes, it's gorgeous.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
