Penny meets Mother Nature

On a spring walk with daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren (one in a back pack and the other in stomping boots prepared for mud), I came across these camelias in differing stages of beauty, of promise, of experience & I snapped a pic of life's renewing cycles.

How age contains not only wisdom, but also all the experiences of one's own unique moments not necessarily relevant to the next blooms on the way. Evenso, as a gran, as NanaPea, I see the new buds forming around me, and I will honour my fading as I know it nourishes those who are growing.
