Illustration Friday: Impatience

I think we all suffer from this one. It is so hard to let things grow in their own time. It is even harder when there is no visible progress.
There is a tree I see in the mornings. It is about 20 or 30 feet tall and it has morning glory vines growing on it all the way to the top. It is an amazing sight festooned in bright purple flowers.
