The lesson of the leaf

HeucheraSnow piled high since the year began, but on this day in March the meltdown begins.   Bits of mulched flower beds have thrown back the covers. This Heuchera seems to be leading the way, leading the plant escape.  This single battered leaf says to the others, “I am unfolding!  I am going out.  I am going for the sun, maybe I will even be crazy and photosynthesize!”

No, this leaf didn’t even care about the forecasted 6 to 8 inches just 24 hours later. This leaf ENJOYED today, every last 50 degree second of it.
