Bloom where you're planted and flourish

Last weekend, while weeding all the garden beds, I found myself standing between the Sweet Annie (Artemesia annua), who stands about 7 feet plus, and the Elecampane (Inula helenium), who is at least 6-1/2 feet tall.

I felt just like Alice in Wonderland.

It's actually a pretty fun thing to be in the middle of such growth. These plants have self-seeded and I had no idea they would pop up where they did. Surprise!

Now, you know me (typical Virgo) ... I had to identify the lesson in this.

"Bloom where you're planted" (one of my touchstone phrases) immediately came to mind.

So, while Leo season (and the Lion's Gate alignment) is all about manifesting and growth (both spiritually AND in the gardens), I can't help but wonder -- where does flourishing fit in?
