Resurrection Symbols


I grow garlic in my garden. It is a really fun plant to watch transform...first the appearance of the long skinny green leaves shooting into the air from the bulbs that are hidden under ground where they have laid dormant for so many months, then the long snake like stem with a bud wrapped tightly at the end. When it's time for the bud to open we wtach it transform throughout the day as the tissue paper like wrapping splits open and the bloom opens up.
This reminds me of other Resurrection symbols. I think of the transformation a butterfly goes through before it emerges, the lily likewise emerging from a seemingly dead bulb (grave), and the pomegranate whose seeds bursting forth are likened to Christ bursting forth from the tomb on Easter.
How does your garden grow?
