More than Just Blossoms


On this third day of spring, this Chinese Proverb reminds us to "Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come." Today’s image (taken from our archives) is one of our favorite specimen trees, the Sweet Bay Magnolia. The chickadee that landed there late last night reminded me of its summer blossom, its fragrance and all its beauty. 

A short excerpt from Mary Oliver’s Poem ‘October’ wraps up today's garden thought.

“What does the world
mean to you if you can’t trust it
to go on shining when you’re
not there?” 

Today’s post is in memory of David Plamondon. Though your blossom seemed short-lived, your sweetness remains for those you left behind.
