Young

Note how this young plant ( sapling ) is struggling to survive in the hottest weather with temperature soaring above 45 º celsius.

If you closely watch it’s hardly a few inches from the ground and already its two leaves have dried and dead.Approximately 6 leaves are left to give her the required nourishment and at the top if you notice,the plant already started blooming with buds.

That’s the spirit.

Trying its best to grow and be useful at the same time, making attempts to survive.

“Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas instead of dying the average person would rather be someone they are not.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

But humans totally destroy the plant kingdom.

“Plants are solar powered air purifiers whose filter never needs replacing.”
