Lesson of the crocus

By the garden on a February day.

On Tuesday, two flowers popped up out of the grass near the garden.  On Wednesday, there was snow and freezing rain and no sign of the flowers (any flowers) anywhere.

If everything changes, if everything ends, then everything matters.  Everything.

Everything is passing… Enjoy its momentariness.

Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope — a slight change, and all patterns alter.

    1. I don’t think so, Barbara. They don’t seem to like them. They eat the new growth on the small trees in the same area, but leave the crocuses alone.
