“The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.” — Basho
We’ve been in Romania (our new home for the next year) for four days, and there are many signs of the lingering poverty of Communism. But there are also flowers. Everywhere. In the most unexpected places. To me, they are symbols of fortitude. And hope.
Do you find flowers where you least expect them? What do they represent to you? And aren’t they just a little bit prettier in a foreign country?
See more flowers at Beth’s on Thursday.
