If I were a photographer I might have known how best to present this plant. (Remember . . . I am on my walk finding what 'winter left behind'.) This pampas is so showy I would have thought it was the middle of summer!
Once again it poured today, the drenching, drowning rain where you wonder how anything can stay intact. I thought of this airy, wispy plant which looked beautiful after months of such rains.
It reminds me of something I have told myself for years. If I am going to be a sweet old lady, I have to be a sweet young lady. Sweet does not just happen. Psalms 40:11 "Let your loving kindness and truth continually preserve me." Phil 4:5 "Let your gentleness be known to all men." I Peter 3:4 "Cultivate your inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in."
