Sheila Shares a Story

I am cheating today.

An image from this summer, a piece still unsold.
This flower pushing its way through the hard ground to bloom.
To blossom.

I am letting my friend Sheila tell the story.
She being the flower and all, I'm thinking,
though we hadn't yet met when the flower pushed through.

I think you'll like her post.
She's a newbie blogger;
check it out and see what you think.
Maybe let her know.
