Planted in early March, this Bud Light bud just recently sprung to life and it was worth the wait. Because they sowed this outside of a local restaurant, the planter will probably never see their harvest — and thus it is a perfect example of how we do not always get to be the ones to enjoy the fruits of our own labor. This vibrant flower’s beauty reminds us all of what Willy Wonka told those selfish children and their greedy families who tainted his chocolate factory, “If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it.”
