To take root in any soil. To thrive regardless of the surroundings. To add an unexpected charm to a barren spot. To pop up and smile from a crevice. To bloom whatever the season be. To weather the storms, beat the heat, bear the cold, and yet flourish.
The resilient “sadaphuli”. A childhood memory of a pot on my grandmother’s sill. Taking root in stray corners. A flash of colour and life in otherwise abandoned gardens. Lining the circumference of a circle en-route. A burst of lavender and white.
Evergreen. Strong. How terrific to be able to withstand what life throws at you and persistently smile.
