Amazingly, a plant I thought was long dead reemerged from the potting soil. About 2 months ago, I turned the soil and planted a single basil seed. The basil never seeded, but I was delighted to see the plant had come back. For me, if a plant dies, I feel like I’ve failed. So this was good news. It was like an old friend I thought I’d never see again. I know it’s just a plant, but the idea of rebirth and resurrection is meaningful to me, more than ever.
