the zen and not zen of flagging

there is nothing quite like looking at an image and wondering if the plant is flagged out there in the winter garden.  the winder garden that needs to be moved in the spring.  you know while it is all green and nothing is blooming.  it will work out.  or it will not. maybe even the first pass at work out instead of the second.  three images…


the growing of seedlings can be many things.  one of those things can be to seek.  seek beauty.  seek new.  seek unusual.  seek to learn.  learn the nature of the plant.  some days a plant of differences is found.  and the difference in itself may be obvious.  what to do with that difference may not be so obvious.  does it have a use ?  is it enjoyable ?  or does it leave us puzzled ?  then there are other days where the flower looks simple.  it resembles so many others.  it seems common without any particular interest.  is it common ?  or does it require more study ?  do i need to sharpen my seeking ?  or perhaps zen my seeking ?  look, enjoy, and do not be afraid to seek.  it is only change.  something we do most every day.
