I love the warm but not stifling hot weather. I love seeing the flowers bloom. I love when my perennials I've forgot about emerge out of the mulch and surprise me!
The other day I was looking at my many plants that had dead parts sticking out of them (because I still need to clean out the flower beds) and stunned by the metaphor between them and myself......
the brown crusty branches are so brittle
making me weak
but the emergence of the fresh green leaves
are so promising
of a bright and healthy season
and the hopes of beautiful blossoms
as I become a bigger and better me.
