Two volunteer plants from the home we were leaving and brought to the home we are beginning. One bloomed the color of all the daisies in the “mother” bed…pink! The other bloomed…pale orange! Who knew. They only just bloomed yesterday, taking their own time to show their special colors.

Raindrops rest in random patterns on the delicate petals. They smell so lovely, as all crysanthemums do. They have a message for me! Diversity is not only good, it is ineveitable.

Welcome to you both in my new garden!

Peace and Blessings –
