It had bloomed gloriously, but got hit by a freeze. This was the result.
I wanted to cry when I saw the tree, but I walked out and looked at it closely.
This is a picture of what I found. Can you see the green buds?
It’s a good lesson for me and maybe you.
Sometimes, everything looks brown and dead.
And it’s easy to believe there’s no hope left.
But looks can be deceiving, as my Japanese magnolia proves.
Even in the darkest times, there is a bud of hope waiting to blossom.
Look for it!
