This morning I walked down to the local coffee shop to meet with a friend for our regular coffee klatch ( yes, I'm an old woman now). I spent time looking at all the beautiful plants and flowers around me. I'm so grateful that my life is filled with so much nature and beauty.
Clearly, in town, these plants are all curated and shaped by people. But isn't it amazing how many people and things had to happen to make these plants possible?
Someone tends them. Someone planted them. Someone raised the seeds. Some worms broke down other things into soil and fertilizer. The water flowed from the mountains. The sun shined. And on and on.
Isn't it wonderful? Even as summer turns to fall and these flowers start to fade. Isn't it wonderful? I'm so thankful that I get to be here to experience the impermanence and beauty of this world we all get to live in.
Did you get to spend time appreciating the plants around you today?
