It opens up into this clever exploding flower. On the cover, I printed a line from the Talmud; "Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, 'grow, grow.'"
Inside, I have hand written a quotation from Ralph Waldo Emerson: "All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason."
You can stand this on a shelf, leave it closed, or open it up and tie the ribbon so it hangs like an ornament.
