About 6 years ago, a friend I have never met (yes you can have people in your life like that) sent me some Columbine seeds after finding one rogue columbine flower blooming in my garden; I knew not what it was.
I threw them about my garden and waited. Nothing.
I waited. Still nothing. I pretty much forgot about them.
Then, today, there they were. A variety of colors and as amazing as a Columbine can be. It's a flower of futuristic design.
They are a reminder to not give up on things... they are just waiting for the right timing.
