A once loved greenhouse, where plants were tended with care, now lies at the edge of a deciduous forest. Its spring leaves sprouting. Inside, plants, overgrown, not recognisable from the colourful, glass windows of the summer of ninety-two.

Amongst the tomatoes, oranges, and bananas, a very special orchid, pink and yellow flowers. Leaves, luscious green, glowing in a stream of light. Now, nobody is sure if it seeds survived, but she had to find out.

Rachel wandered through the familiar path, towards her mum’s second home. She always watched, as seeds, no bigger than an ant grew tall. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and even winter was special. It was a time where nothing grew, but inside this greenhouse, Spring was always close.

The door squeaked open, and she stared at the overgrowth. To make it great again, to give the old greenhouse another wave of life. As the warm days moved forward, the plants were green once more. At the back, a small bud began to grow, reaching for the sun.

The old greenhouse breathed new life, and the bud bloomed. Its beautiful, petals shining in the sun. A waterfall of colours, next time she would bring her own daughter here, and life would always keep growing.
