You’d never know how much work went into the picture comprising this blog post. And by work, I mean self-restraint, patience, and the perfect application of fertilizer.

Are you ready for it? Ok, here it goes:

Just check out that flower! As you may recall, I struggled with the proper watering of the Peace Lily despite the warnings at Houseplant411.com (check out other HBH favorites on the Resources page). Intentional underwatering coupled with some fertilizer at half of the potency as described on the label and lots of waiting (like 12 months worth!) has resulted in a lily… bud?

Whatever it’s called, it has my grinning ear to ear. It’s also reinforced the importance of patience, obedience and diligence at the most timely of moments.
