Darling Buds of May

This flowering shrub is on my parents’ front lawn. My mom sees it out her front window every time she comes back from the bathroom (which, at her age, is often).


Each time she sees it she bursts into a huge smile as if she was seeing it for the first time (which is kind of the case). It’s a beautiful thing to see such uncomplicated delight and I feel privileged to witness it.


Take time today to notice the flowers.
