Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

This week on our homestead, we’ve been feeling grateful at the little surprises out in nature.

One of those is the random Crazy Daisy flower that popped up this year!

Crazy daisy

One year I threw a bunch of random seeds down our hillside, expecting waves of floral color! It didn’t happen. Guess the lazy gardening technique doesn’t produce much.

But this one plant made it! It’s cheery bloom brightened my day, and gave me the reminder that some good things take time.

It didn’t bloom the first year.

Or even the second.

But this year, here it is!

So…don’t lose heart.

Life is a little like a flower seed thrown down the hill. Some sun, some showers, and some time may still bring something beautiful in your life.

Bloom where you’re planted.

In God’s time.
