Unreasonable happiness

Last year I tried to take cuttings from my potentilla. They seemed to flourish initially, but six out of eight of them died over the next few weeks. In November the remaining two looked like dead sticks, and I thought of throwing them away, but then I realised that their parent bush looked dead too, as it always does in winter. So I left them.

And today, the first day of spring, I looked at them, and they are both growing the tiniest, weeniest green leaves.

It is a very small thing, but it has made me very happy.
