It's September. Spring is seasons away and some leaves are still green, yet plants are already preparing for their next blossom ― sending forth the Bud.
Though we first notice the Bud around springtime, by then it will have already been forming for months; slowly, silently, pushing forth through fall and winter.
And the work must begin now; the intricate and colourful flower that will emerge cannot develop overnight.
So through winter winds, freezing cold, rain and snow, the Bud will ready itself.
the Bud: Calm, patient preparation. Role model of foresight. Reminder to begin planning the next project before the current one is over.
How are you preparing for spring?
