Since the enduring drought (140+ days with very little rain) here in the South continues to challenge those of us nurturing gardens, I felt compelled to combine two elements.
The fragility of life is symbolized by each flower.
The continuity of time symbolized by the enduring qualities of stone.
Someday it will rain again....someday....someday....
Each of these garden stones has a story; a story I should share in the future.
Visit our host, Carol, at May Dreams Gardens at http://www.maydreamsgardens.com/ for more stories and more gardens. She's also on my sidebar favorites. :-)
