The “Freesia” is best known for its perseverance. My husband and I live in Oklahoma; famous for its storms! Two years in a row we were hit by huge hail storms replacing a roof after each one. We feared losing the garden we had worked hard to cultivate. Amazingly, we lost very little. Within days we saw new blossoms on the bushes and the flattened plants had regained their buoyancy.
I know that it is sun, water, deep roots and nourishment from the soil that allows them to thrive. I can relate to that. I am most nourished by a spiritual life and a depth of relationship with family and friends. It is there that I find an ability to persevere, when the winds are high.
