Do you see what I see?

I know that it's December....but someone should tell
the plants in my window box on the gate to my house!

I have long since cleared out the plants in the planters
 outside which shriveled and turned brown...
but these beauties cling to life...

Every time I pass through the gate they
bring a smile to my face...

They refuse to give up...
they are beautiful in spite of what is
happening around them...
and they stand tall in the face of adversity....

Inspiration is everywhere...
sometimes right before our eyes! 

Happy December! 


  1. They not only cling to life, but they seem to thrive! Such a happy unexpected!! I have some sweet alyssum and a few snapdragons that just keep on toughing it out...

    Happy December sweetie!
