… a thing isn’t beautiful because it lasts


Humans are odd. They think order and chaos are somehow opposites and try to control what won’t be.
But there is grace in their failings. I think you missed that.


They’re doomed.


Yes. But a thing isn’t beautiful because it lasts. It’s a privilege to be among them.

  1. A winner. I noticed, over the years, crocus will spread if the environment is supportive.

    1. In past years, I would normally see dozens of crocus, tulips, and other bulbs. I had planted them when my children were kids. But I have seen chipmunks scurrying between my garden, across my driveway to the garden next door and back. I think over the last few years; the chipmunks may have decimated the bulbs. They don't seem to bother the daffodils, squills, hyacinths and snowdrops.

      I have been trying to transition the garden patch to native plants species. But that has a different challenge: deer.
