All this packed into one tiny flower. The sound of all my neighbors mowing their lawns kind of spoiled the moment. I wondered what beautiful things they were shredding to pieces?
I'd at least pick a few to put in a glass in a sunny window.
I once watched a city crew mow down an entire field of wildflowers because it was on their mowing schedule. Didn't even leave them long enough to reseed. And it included the Bluebonnet, our state flower!
Here's to the little things in the garden...and to the big things (like gardeners) that protect them.
