Bloom Where You Are Planted
We don't have mail delivery to our homes here in this tiny Colorado town. So, sometime around noon, most of the town shows up at the Post Office, (it's actually very social). I use to walk , but there is a steep hill on the return...Yes it is the same one on the way down...but much harder to negotiate coming back up, so I drive. I am always amazed this time of year, at the wildflowers that bloom on the side of our rock hill.
With very little soil, or moisture, they still thrive
This one in particular reminds me of the quote, I believe attributed to Mary Englebreit
"Bloom Where You Are Planted" which is not a bad motto to live by!
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
