I always thought I was a zinnia or sunflower plant...a single stalk, growing straight up. Maybe in a garden of like-minded plants but an independent stalk all the same.Getting enmeshed with other plantings made me feel like this peony, moments before I rescue her from the morning glory vine that is snaking around her throat.
You still grow tall.
You just don't need to do it alone.
Thank you, E.
