Two years ago, I decided to plant a different herb each spring. While cleaning the cabinet, I noticed we had a pack left from last spring. I planted it despite it being close to winter. My favorite part is watching the first few sprouts pop up. I don’t really have a green thumb, but I’m learning. I just think its amazing watching things come to life. Growing anything can really be a soothing past time. It makes me happy watching things evolve over time.
Anyway, the reason I chose to post about this is is because of how the plant is bent. When I grew my first plant, I loved seeing how the plants would always bend towards the light. It just goes to show how smart nature and every living thing really is. They instinctively do what they need to in order to survive, just like us. Im going to sound like one of those cheesy quotes on tumblr but I think it’s really beautiful, to find common ground with something as simple as a plant. It only reminds you that even the tiniest living things are exactly that, living. I think we forget that sometimes.
