I was so excited when a few days ago a bud developed on a Camellia that I had waited 14 years to bloom.
This morning I planned to go and check on the progress but I got sidetracked on the prairie watching the tiny birds fly in and out of trees! There was a tiny yellow bird that flew back and forth, a small black bird that flew back and forth, and the cranes that relocated many times while I was there.
I pulled into my driveway and the clouds were the most beautiful pink! I took a picture of the pink through our Live Oak in our front yard.
Went in the house and realized it was dark! And I had missed my flower blooming! So I did what anyone who has waited 14 years for a flower to bloom…walked out in the dark with my daughter’s flash camera and took a picture. It is the thickest Camellia I have ever felt. The petals were so thick and triple any flower petal number I have ever seen. I couldn’t wait to post my pictures.
Today was a hard day. I had many flashbacks all morning. I could not clear my head, let go of the memories, cope with the memories, cope with my illness or my daughter’s illness. It wasn’t until I saw the pink in the sky and my flower that I finally felt settled.
