A new beginning from an end….

In one of my earlier posts (Rooted in Joy) I have shared with you about my efforts to grow some plants in my home-away-from-home. Just when I thought I am doing a satisfactory job with my potted plants, a few days back, I saw one of my plants in this condition:

This was what it looked like a few weeks back –

But then today morning when I checked the plant again, I was surprised and happy too to see this –

New leaves have sprouted and I am hoping now that it would be back to its original self! I cannot tell you how happy I was to see my plant back to life. 🙂 These lines by F. Scott Fitzgerald (in The Great Gatsby) is what I have realised in this experience –

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall”

And as always, Mother Nature taught me a valuable life lesson once again – every new beginning comes from the end of some other beginning!  🙂









  1. so glad your plant came back to life. We sometimes forget when we bring plants inside that we are putting them out of their element. They have a life cycle that goes on no matter where they are.

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
