As an addition to our garden this year we planted a row of sunflowers along the corral fence. While tending our plants on the weekends and in the evenings it has been a joy to watch the sunflowers grow, anticipating their bright blooms.
The first of those blooms opened as August arrived, followed by many more in a variety of colors from red to orange and the traditional yellow. This addition has made our garden a beautiful place.
A cold snap hit the valley last week, touching the leaves of our garden plants here and there, as well as triggering a change of color in the trees in the higher elevations. As the calendar indicates, a new season approaches.
Back in the garden, our sunflowers reflect this change. While many blooms remain yet untouched by the present cycle of the seasons, others are fading. It’s only a matter of time before all of them will vanish into memory.
Circumstances in life change just like the passing of the flowers, blooming and fading as the days go by. The trick is to hold tight to the memory of beautiful things to sustain us through the seasons of life.
