The Fruits of Her Labor
We've lived in Katherine's house since I was 8 months pregnant with Jill. It will be 27 years in August. I have no idea when she planted the orange blooms. I just know they've always been a part of the landscape of our backyard.
They are hardly worth noticing as I head out on an early morning walk, as dawn turns to day. Since they are on the west side of the building, it takes longer for the morning light to reach them.
We plant seeds in life. We may never realize the way they blossom far into the future.
