Changing of the Guard

As I drive around town I am intrigued to see the pansies and daffodils growing together. It seems to symbolize the changing of the guard, one season blending in and giving way to the next. The pansies, beginning to look tired and ready to rest, and the daffodils glowing brightly in the sun.

It reminds me of this quote from

"Seasons come and go. The sun rises and sets. We breathe in and out. Rhythm is at the core of all existence."


  1. Thanks for a glimpse of something growing and pretty!

  2. That quote sums it up so well..we fret over the season we are in -- cold winter, summer too hot, etc. and yet each one has it's purpose and it's rhythm and if we just "wait" and have patience, the next one will be revealed in it's time. Pansies? Daffodils?!? I wait with bated breath because I know they are coming!

  3. great seeing - those together. I love this twixt time.

  4. Wonderful! Spring is coming!

  5. The quote reminds me of an old song my mom used to listen to when I was very young. One of the lines was "Seasons come and time will go right through your hands like wind and sand".

  6. The Pansies are geting tired already?
    Mine that winter over, are tired of trying to come alive!
    Have you noticed, usually, the most common color of the earliest Spring flowers are yellow?
