Right now I have a vase of Larch clippings, again a gift from my neighbor. When I got them they looked like dead branches with little cone shaped bumps all over them.
Now they look like this.
Or in close up.....
Bach's flower remedies list Larch as the remedy for people who feel that they are not as good as others and that they are bound to fail. They lack confidence in their ability to succeed and so often do not even bother trying. The remedy helps people in this state to go ahead regardless of thoughts of success and failure. More able to take risks and be involved in life, they get more out of living.
Well, I can see that since it "bloomed" so easily with no real work on my part! Just succeeding so quickly and easily to "get" it to bloom is a real confidence booster! I sure hope to see little white roots on this bunch of cuttings!
