“Nobody waters these plants, God waters them.” My mother-in-law would enlighten us whenever she saw plants in full bloom along public roads and highways.
We readily nod in agreement although, sometimes the public works department (PWD) in their water trucks carry out “God’s job.” But one never argues with one’s mother-in-law!
I sometimes do wonder if my mother-in-law was indeed passing on pearls of wisdom. The PWD only waters those plants on the main roads and highways.
Plants along roads inside housing estates are left to survive on their own. And yet, they bloom amazingly well. So I took a walk and found some "weeds” that ONLY GOD WATERS.
