A few weeks ago my daughter brought home a handful of purple beans from school. I confess in the frenzy of after school excitement, I made a mental note to toss them in the compost bin later. Pushing that thought away, we took the following 10 minutes and scoured the house for unused mason jars, went to the garden beds and scooped up dirt, plopped the seeds on top, doused with water, and forgot all about them. You can imagine the excitement when we finally noticed these regal stalks poised like ice skaters waiting for their debut. Now, instead of dwelling in the land of the forgotten, these elegant flora adorn our dining room windows, and serve as a reminder that amazing things can happen with a little hope.
