The things we leave behind

Of course the story is true about our not taking anything with us when we depart this life, but we do leave things behind.

On the little country road leading to my house (Pettus Road) someday long ago somebody planted holly hocks and golden day lilies. They are now in full bloom, filling a ditch with their beauty and scent. The holly hock is such an unusual flower--so tall and elegant. It can carry many blooms and never bend. This particular stand of flowers graduate from white to pink to a faint lavender. The day lilies proclaim joy with their color and form like golden trumpets playing

Thanks to the gardener who left this lovely patch of beauty.
