Wintery Bougainvillea

I took these photos several days ago. The flowers looked like they were all dying.  Yet, when I looked closely, there was new growth sprouting.

Just goes to show you the resilience this little plant has.  I think inside, we all have resilience when times get tough.  We just need to remind ourselves.

“Resilience is not what happens to you. It’s how you react to, respond to, and recover from what happens to you.”
