The Queen and her corgi - @casey.sh isn’t this adorable?? The other queen in my life has a dragon. It seems fitting they are now together.

A story for the new year about blooming where you’re planted: My insurance company forced me to cut this very old camellia bush (30+ years old) down six years ago. It was 20 feet tall and glorious but the size/proximity to the house bothered them. I was beyond annoyed - the bush was no danger to the house or the foundation, it was just one of those arbitrary decisions people make sometimes because they can. (For context, I live in a neighborhood of huge towering old oak trees that are a much bigger threat to life and limb but they didn’t force me to cut any of those down, so killing the camellia bush felt silly to me.) But I needed to keep my homeowners insurance so I did as I was told. A year later, I noticed the bush was putting new shoots out next to its old stump. I let it keep growing and tended it as needed, ever hopeful I could coax it back to glory. Now, five years later, on New Year’s Day, I discover it has bloomed for the first time since it was cut back to the ground, and the sight makes me ridiculously happy. Screw you, world, it seems to be saying, you can try your best to cut me down to size but I’m going to bloom just where I’m planted. 
May we all be so determined in 2019 to do our own thing, despite whatever the world thinks or says. Happy New Year, everyone. 🌺❤️ #newyear #2019 #camellia #bloomwhereyouareplanted
