Life Lessons From A Plant

Posted on March 24th, 2015 by

If you have plants, indoor or out, you’ll know that sometimes you just have to cut off all the old growth to let the new, vibrant shoots through and prolong their life.

I always hate doing it as it seems so brutal, and for a while you have a sad naked looking plant sporting a skinhead hair cut.

And then the glorious new leaves and flowers come through and I know I’ve done the right thing.

Think about the lowly Cyclamen, one of my favourites. It has amazing regenerative powers and just when you think it’s given up the ghost produces a beautiful bloom.

Life’s often like that….

If you’re thinking of allowing your beautiful bloom to shine through this year, check out RenewYou. One day… lasts a lifetime.

And suddenly a tiny gap in the clouds appeared and we saw the whole thing. Yes, I know I look weird with a huge colander on my head but sometimes it’s worth

Yes, women bleed every month or so and when they stop bleeding they have something called the menopause. It’s an essential part of procreation, of life on earth. It’s awful, isn’t it?
