I have an unusual (to me) flowering plant in my back yard. The flower is large and vibrant red, just beautiful. But I’ve noticed that the bloom only lasts a couple of days. I always like to look at the plant every day when I go to the garden, to remind me of how I should live life to the fullest for the couple of days I am here on earth. And it reminds me to really appreciate and enjoy the beauty around me before it goes away. Then I go to the garden to harvest the zucchini, and I find humongous zucchinis that I can’t really use. They grew huge and I didn’t notice. So now I use the zucchinis to remind me to be more mindful and notice things and people around me before they outgrow me. Plants are so inspiring!
