Sadly, not even one of the huge palm trees was spared. Everything was completely flattened and now my view is that of an empty lot. When you are missing green and trees and all things that bloom, that empty lot is not a very pretty sight.
In a desert country, in the summer, with blazing heat, every day beauty isn't just sitting there staring me in the face. I have to seek beauty in the unlikeliest of places.
Although all the plants on my balcony died, I still continue to water hoping that life will spring forth again. My garden helpers are the doves who bring a little wildflower seed when they visit.
I am happy for the green and tiny flowers that bloom. Mary from Mary's Meanderings mentioned that my wildflower looked like purslane which is actually edible.
The other night, I could see the sky changing color as the sun began to set so I ran to the balcony and this is what I saw!
I realized that when the house was there, it was blocking my view! Now on a clear day, I can see a sunset in all its glory!
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all. (Laura Ingalls Wilder - American Author of children's fiction based on her own youth in the American Midwest. 1867-1957)
