I have been admiring this flower with our children for weeks. A group of broad leaf green plants was cut back a couple of months ago. They were getting long and growing over the sidewalk at the front of our subdivision. The yard men cut them back…boo. I like wild things! However, sometimes in cutting things back you get new growth.
A shoot of green grew out of the plant a few weeks ago, and day by day we have watched to see what it would become. A “firework flower” bloomed! That is what I named it. I really do not know what it is. I posted it to Facebook for friends to fill me in and posted it a plant nursery to see if they can tell me what it is so we can plant our own firework flowering plant in our yard! Comment please if you know its real name!
Today, I encourage YOU to look for some glimmers of grace. I took my camera to the bus stop. Where do you go daily that you can see God winking at YOU? Ann Voskamp’s “One Thousand Gifts” prompts me to see God’s glory in every day places and count the gifts.
