With Time and Care


Bay Leaf Plant
Wounds are healing

Restoration is at work

New life is coming

This little Bay Leaf Plant was growing great in a small area of the lawn but one day he was accidentally mowed down and was deemed too injured to keep. He was headed for the compost bin but I intervened to save him. I wanted to give him a new chance at life and so with good soil, water and sunshine I see he is now coming back. New sprouts are emerging! Soon he will be a big glorious Bay Leaf Tree!  😊 

Life at times is rough

Somedays might be really tough

Never giving up

Holding on til my last breath

I choose life over death
