there's a blog i read that celebrates abundance. which got me thinking about how amazing i find the profusion of wildflowers this time of year. we have less annual precipitation than denver. that amazes me (remembering many water shortages, restrictions, etc from growing up there).
i was really aware this morning of how lucky i am to have this resource and to be able to start my day on the trails. thinking about how perfectly adapted to a pretty harsh environment these plants are. but they wouldn't thrive in a climate with really rich soil & lots of rain. (neither would i!)
