Seeds of Patience

Where better to learn patience than in the garden, 

where seeds are sown
flowers grow
and return 
to seeds
to be sown

and so 
the circle goes
and grows
into seeds of patience.

For most of my life, I was an impatient person, but the last few years have taught me a great deal about it and how to demonstrate it. It might be my most valuable lesson. that is a wonderful photograph. I'm very partial to purple and green.

Teresa,
Yes, a truly valuable lesson, couldn't agree more.
I find peacefulness in patience. A reward of sort, for struggling to find a path to it. Can't say I'm always able to call upon it, but, like you I learn more and more about accessing and employing it as the years go by. Works in progress we are.

Purple and green feel calm to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
Hugs,
Chris

Our life is also in this circle.Facing some emergency, we may be impatient.After that and when looking back,mostly we would be more patient.That's also called "Understand"

Welcome Cassa,

Life certainly does circle and so many things can set the stage for impatience. I'm glad we have the opportunity to look back and gain that understanding you speak of.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts,
Chris

Bonjour! So true! I came home to an overgrown garden, so the process of patience begins all over again.

BG,
Welcome back! You have a successful history with patience. I'm guessing that garden looks beautiful whether overgrown or not right about now. Wonderful photos of Canada at your blog. So glad you caught all those wonderful bits and pieces of the city. Very fun.
Hugs and love,
Chris
