This waterlily plant was frozen under ice in the garden pond for two months last winter. It’s taken all summer to produce this single bloom - but it was worth waiting for….

"I want to apologize to all the women I have called beautiful
before I’ve called them intelligent or brave
I am sorry I made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on I will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because I don’t think you’re beautiful
but because I need you to know
you are more than that"
