I like to think that being a gardener is more than just growing plants.
It’s also learning to stop and appreciate nature’s beauty in the most unexpected ways. Take, for instance, the wild onion. Around here, it’s very prolific. And it can be viewed as an invasive, annoying weed that interrupts the lawn and makes things look unkempt. Or, they can be appreciated for the wild and beautiful flowers that they are.
And when you view them with the green of the incoming grass, the purple of the wild violets and yellow of the dandelions, the colors are beautiful and definitive of spring in all its glory.
So I’m choosing to appreciate them for what they are, and for what they bring to the world.
It’s a good metaphor for life, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day!
