Hope amidst despair.
Mike and I have destroyed one of my flower beds in an attempt to eradicate the bamboo that had taken over. As you can see, we are still in the process of digging out all the bamboo roots. This isn't going to be a quick process. I'm learning that few things worth doing are fast and easy. This morning I noticed that the roses that live on the side of this bed have really blossomed (pun intended). I think perhaps giving them some freedom from the bamboo and day lilies that were crowding around has helped. Of course, I know nothing about roses so who knows why they are looking so beautiful. It is so nice to sit here at the laptop and see their beauty amid the mess. Let us always look for the beauty no matter the mess we see.
