Funny thing. I walked by it a couple of days post excavation, and it was blooming – flowers galore! There was enough nourishment and water in the plant for it to think it was still alive and growing, even though it was completely separated from the ground and its home. It bloomed for a while, great guns. Then it started to wilt, because it was disconnected from that which gave it water, food, and life; apart from that which translated the elements into what was needed for life.
We are choosing to not replant it – in truth, I am not a gardener and not even sure if it would live if it WAS replanted. But I know this about people: even when they’ve been uprooted for a long while, regrowth and reconnection is possible.
Been uprooted a while? Think you’re blooming when in fact you’re just going through the motions? Welcome home. We love to add new plants to the garden. Happy Easter.
