I am continually thankful for the way seasons work. As time progresses through the year, our mother earth blesses us with changes in the landscape we live in. I am so amazed by the cycle of plant life and how there is always something new coming or going. Today I was blessed by the blooms of the Rose of Sharon bush outside my window. It is a giant bush and reminds me of my grandmother. As long as I've been familiar with this particular plant, my family has called it the Althea bush. Simply beautiful!
