Rose of Jericho, a Resurrection Plant

My dear friend, Christie Waldron, brought me a rose of Jericho, a resurrection plant. What joy to see the symbolism of this beauty. From Wikipedia:

S. lepidophylla is noted for its ability to survive almost complete desiccation; during dry weather in its native habitat, its stems curl into a tight ball and uncurl only when exposed to moisture.

Truly, #beautyallaround and, "There's hope. Look."
