Life lessons abound in a variety of places. I’ve spent some time over the last couple years looking at trends and writing about life lessons. Many of our experiences in this life lead to lessons learned and practical applications for the future. What seems to be a simple day, game, or training becomes an opportunity to learn something deeper that helps us to grow as individuals.
I recently had such an experience as it relates to my home garden. Each year I tend to plant a little something in the spring, usually a combination of flowers, vegetables and greenery. Some years I plant more than others, and sometimes the garden is planted directly in the ground and sometimes in pots on the deck. I’ve decided I prefer using pots on the deck…so much easier to control weeds really.
This year was different though. I had a very busy spring and as much as I enjoy planting and playing in the dirt, I ended up with no time to plant. So strangely after returning from a recent conference, I went outside to discover some things growing in my pots.
