Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.
– John Pearce
In our backyard, we’ve planted flowers in a circle around two trees. The trees were planted shortly after the births of our two granddaughters. Around the 7 1/2-year-old tree is a tangle of Cosmos, one of my favorite, long-lasting flowers. Yesterday morning the light was filtering through the Cosmos foilage, creating shadows across the blossoms. I liked how a taller flower was open wide to the sun, and the smaller had yet to bloom fully. Reminded me of two generations sharing space but growing at their own pace.
