On Monday, I went back to take another look at this beautiful flower bush; hoping to find a plant tag with the name of it. I had taken this photo only a week earlier.
But what a difference 7 days can make. 😦
The flowers were now so withered and dried out; if I hadn’t known where to look, I would never have figured out this was actually the same plant.
Isn’t that usually the way with life and each of our experiences? If we don’t stop to “capture the moment” when it comes, it’s more often than not, gone forever. And then, everything changes. Change can be good but sometimes it comes quicker than we’d like or in ways we didn’t plan (usually the case, right?)
PS: If anyone knows the name of this flowering bush, please let me know. And yes, I’m planning to write a haiku for this one too. It’s too pretty to resist.
PSS: I may be off-line for a few days. Some “issues” have come up here. Another tough challenge to face. 😦 Enough said.
Do send your good thoughts, prayers and vibes our way, thanks. We sure need them...
