And to think, I almost cut it down

When we first moved into our house, I had grand plans to makeover the entire front of the property. Armed with a saw, my first order of business was to hack down two old, and dying, azalea shrubs. Next to one of the azaleas was a leggy green bush. I had no idea what it was. Luckily, I got busy with the back vegetable garden to go through with cutting it down. Fast-forward to the following spring when it exploded with bluish-purple color. So glad I didn’t cut it down.

I guess that’s the lesson of gardening–wait and see. If you’re not sure, wait and see. That ugly shrub could turn out to be full of beautiful flowers.
