Last year, the mint growing in the pot to the right flourished beautifully, with lovely sprigs that turned into airy streamers, draping over the rail, sending shoots willy-nilly. Somehow, one of them landed in the pot of Thai basil and was unnoticed as it took root. It wintered undetected until the spring sunshine began to work its magic.
I am easily intrigued with the symbolic in life. Like this shoot of mint, it is fascinating how nature and the metaphysical realm can instruct us if we are observant. Sometimes, the best ideas come to fruition long after the seed was planted, and then one day, there it was, bearing fruit.
