Something Beautiful: Snapdragon Surprise

My daughters and I have a potted avocado tree we’ve grown from a pit. It is a few years old now but still resembles more of a house plant than an actual tree. Over the last several months we watched strange, green, weed-like sprouts grow from the soil of our tree. As soon as they appeared we decided we would let them grow, be what they would be. Inside my mind, the unknown has bothered me. What if I’ve waited all this time and these straggly greens turned out to be nothing more than weeds, pulling precious nutrients from our beloved tree!?

Something beautiful happened. Our greens formed buds and bloomed into the most unexpected winter surprise.
