Rose of Jericho

Check out this time lapse of a Rose of Jericho (Selaginella lepidophylla). After being exposed to water, the plant turns from a dried tumbleweed to a green fern over the course of several hours.

I recently saw this little video and thought about the times when something small can make a big difference in how we feel.  Or, times when we didn't realize we needed a change until it came.  I always feel this way in February/March when the buds on our cherry trees open and there is an end in sight to our grey days.  If you are having a hard time and feel a bit like this dried up Rose of Jericho maybe you can try an activity you haven't done for a while that makes you "bloom" or a reach out to a friend that always makes you feel good.
