Two weeks ago, we cut back a lot of the overgrown plants and trees to tidy the place up for the big fall Gift Market.  This Lindheimer Muhly grass had gotten really huge and dangerous with it's razor-sharp leaves, growing close to the sidewalk.  We cut it back, nearly to the ground, with the thought of breaking it up later and relocating the pieces to better spots.

But it would not be stopped.  It didn't take that monumental setback as an excuse to give up.  Almost immediately, it sent out brand new green leaves.  You could almost stand there and watch them grow.

That's what you call endurance and perseverance.  Today when I walk past it, it reminds me to not flag or tire, and to not give up, no matter what discouragements come my way.
