Carefully tended – 

delicate blossom outgrows 

its youthful garden.

 

Having recently become an empty nester, I’ve been contemplating how, ultimately, the sign that we have done our job as parents well is that our children move away.  To raise a child who is strong and independent enough to venture out into the world and start growing in a garden of their own making is what we strive for.  It is an emotional time, but can be an exciting transition to being able to focus on your own garden.
