To plant a seed, cultivate the emergent seedling, and help it receive the necessary nourishment to come to bloom in all its radiance is such a remarkable experience. I was inspired to create this mosaic while visiting a local pick-your-own farm in September. This farm is advertised as a “Maine Family Farm Experience”. It has many crops, among them being pumpkins, apples, a corn maze, Zinnias, Cosmos, and Sunflowers. My family enjoyed walking through the rows of flowers, and watching bees work their magic. I imagine the farmers have such a sense of accomplishment at the moment their hard work comes to fruition, and families come through their farm to pick fruits, vegetables, and flowers. “Bloom” represents that moment.
