Lilac. It’s a ‘bisexual’ plant that symbolizes love. I didn’t know that. Only that it smells divine and will not last long if you cut it down and expect it to live in a container. Fitting I guess. On the vine, it flourishes. In a jar…a rapid decline.
I assume anything that is a bit off beat and vibrant by nature would react the same way if expected to conform.
Perhaps just a bit of tending. Water. Sun. A general acceptance for its unique beauty. That would allow it to flourish. Blessed be the non-invasive gardener. Blessed be the lilac of its love.
