Beauty is Just Outside Your Front Door

About four feet out my front door, to be exact. It took us years to find perennials to survive in that little space, but these have been great: a colorful, cheery shot of joy to start your day. They bloom all summer and well into the fall in full Texas sun.





Alas, the flowers last only a day. They are tissue paper. It's a reminder of the fragility and beauty of life, cleaning out my little flower bed.

As rough a morning as the small person and I had Monday, when I turned around to tell her to close the front door a saw a bunch of flaming scarlet flowers stuck to the pale grey shingles of my front porch roof. The trees next to it flower in pink and white, so I have no idea where it came from.

It was so striking I caught my breath and stopped dead in the middle of my bad mood to take a picture.
