Things are beginning to wilt a bit in our Texas heat but something lovely is happening as well. Many of our plantings have bloomed their little hearts out are now forming beautiful seed pods.
Moonflower Pod, August, 2013, created in Paper 53
Seeds and seed pods contain the future. They are perfectly designed little vessels of hope and promise. To me they symbolize faith.
It takes faith to keep planting seeds even when you don't yet see the fruit of your efforts. It takes faith to make good choices, to keep practicing, to keep fighting when the goal remains just out of reach. Keep at it, though. Seeds sprout when conditions are right... you can count on it.
