Remember my beautiful yellow flower framed and uploaded some days ago?

Closed.

This beautiful flowering plant is planted outside my fence and I usually walk past it when going out or coming in. There was a day however that it struck me that the flowers weren't there anymore as I returned in the evening though they were in full bloom when I passed by in the morning. I wondered what/which wicked soul(s) sent them to an untimely death. I felt sad but I couldn't do much about it.

On my way out the next morning, no difference. That day though, I left work early and was so surprised to see rhe flowers radiant and beautiful. Apparently, the flower folds up every evening as the sun goes though, I am yet to get the exact timing.

What is the lesson?

  • Know when to put yourself out there and when to stay away so predators do not get to you and destroy you.
  • The flower in bloom opens up completely though it knows it will close up later; give your all in whatever you are doing so that your absence will be felt in your home or organization.

I know there are many plants like this in nature, we just have to learn from there. I also met a frog recently, I will share its story with you soon.

Stay relevant. Bloom. Boom. Blossom.
I love you,
