Adjusting to change

A few weeks ago, I transplanted four ostrich ferns from another garden to ours, and they promptly fell to the ground in a heap of botanical despair. I thought they were goners, so I cut them back to the crown. This week, they’ve all shot up new fronds and look renewed. Whenever we’re presented with a big change in our lives, it takes time to adjust, right? Guess it’s no different with plants.
