A recent visit to a friend's beach house for a mental get-away was all it took to get me thinking about "change", "new start", "fresh", "move ahead", and the need to put old things behind. Her gardening "stuff" and all the clipping we did on winter leftovers and moving out "old" plants that she no longer wanted gave me some much needed perspective.
Everything in life - plants, flowers, grass, humans, relationships - must be watered, fertilized, cultivated to maintain health and beauty...I see that everytime I walk out into my yard right now...yikes!
The beauty of a fresh young bloom that has been given care
How beautiful are these air plants to add spice to the beautiful back garden? We all need a little zip in our lives!
I suppose I will exit this earth with a pair of lawn clippers in my hands....but, when clipping, it is a reminder of things that maybe should be "pruned" in our lives....attitudes, beliefs....what regenerates should be better than what was clipped away...the issue is the clipping can be quite painful at times, agree?
Just because - love the colors and textures~
