Wouldn’t you agree that very few things are as breathtaking as a flower about to bloom?

It is cloaked treasure, surprise ending, and infinite promise.

Which is exactly how I see people who are just starting to catch a glimpse of their beauty and their unique gifts.

I see the cloaked treasure, surprise ending, and infinite promise inside, even when they cannot yet believe.

I’m convinced that soon, just like this peony, they will burst into full bloom.

I can hardly wait.

The first peony to bloom in my garden this year. My surprise ending? I didn't know that there were magenta splashes inside; I have waited for five years for this bush to finally be in full bloom. Worth the wait, don't you think?
