“…to see it from seed, to watch it grow little by little, to watch the process, to see it struggle, to see it survive, there’s this whole level of appreciation that everything takes time, everything takes the right amount of nurturing, everything deserves effort because it’s making an effort.” —Niki Nakayama

And because I don’t like to discriminate, a different variety. Plus more magnolias. And even more magnolias.
Well, I can’t say I didn’t ask for it.
I’m missin’ that Carolina sunshine and slow, southern, easy pace of life.
Back again. I love this place.
Hung out with some zen flowers, umbrella leaves, and shower head seed pods in the Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. All stretching taller than me. Yes please.
