A slow and reluctant learner, I would now consider myself a relatively patient person. This hasn't come easy! Over many years and many "lessons in patience" sent by the universe, I've had no choice but to learn this trait.
Gardening is definitely a hobby that includes many of those lessons in patience. Every time I see a new bud forming on one of my plants I get all excited and can hardly wait for it to open.

Oh, the painstaking patience it requires to be a gardener can sometimes be frustrating!
But, when the day comes that I check the garden and . . .
discover this . . . I am truly rewarded for my reluctant patience!
