Life is a funny thing. The simple things we take for granted, even look upon as somehow undesirable, end up, at times, being what is most important.
“They say you never know what you’ve got till it’s gone” as Toby Mac sang in Gone. I find this to be true, especially in Spring, and Summer… and Fall, and Winter too, if truth be told.
The photo above is a picture from the front porch of our one-time home. These were the flowers and blooms that would burst forth with color, heralding the birth of the new season. I do miss those flowers of Spring, that I passionately planted and tended.
We had a few apple trees on the property. Only one survived and this is a bloom from one season, the only time this tree ever bloomed and bore fruit.
