The Movement of Life.

The Movement of Life.

Thursday Challenge ~ Movement.
It's not obvious, but these two plants, a Jade and a White Pine,
more than any plants I've ever grown, seem to be in a constant state of movement
upwards and outwards. The White Pine is special because it was given to me when I was
first diagnosed with cancer in 1999 (in remission now);
then it was only a splinter of a plant about 8 inches tall.
Now it stands nearly 3 feet tall and three and a half feet wide. I've never been able to grow a Jade plant before this one; from just one small stem, it has grown two feet in about 15 months.

Time moves slowly when we want it to speed up
and fast when we want it to slow down.
I guess it's all about balance.
