Friday in Black and White – Learning from nature – Roots keep us alive!

Today I took care of my “garden”. There is no garden in the true sense of the word because I live on the 7th floor in an apartment , it is the garden arranged in my balcony. I have plenty of flower pots, bonsai or avocado. Avocado trees have obtained from the seeds of the fruits I have consumed. I do not think I will ever get fruit from them but they are beautiful in my “garden”. But as development conditions are not ideal, one of the trees has dried out. I think it was because the pot was too small. My fault that I did not change it. It was a lesson from which I learned something. I moved those who were left in much larger pots. And … I found an interesting subject to photograph.

“I’m planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.” ― Andrea Koehle Jones

Look at how the root has been twisted into pots! 

What have I learned from this? If we do not take care of our roots, we will die.
