A bud is an embryonic swelling on the stem of the rose that has the potential to develop into a flower, leaf, or shoot. In temperate climates plants form resting buds that are resistant to the brutal frost.
The bud is the promise of what’s to come. It’s the physical manifestation of the seeds that we’ve been holding deep in the earth, nurturing and dreaming through the fertile void of winter. Now, we find ourselves in the inner season of spring, and the bud is beginning to realize what it was always destined to be. But it still requires tending in order to bloom one day soon.
