Flowers For George Washington

First in War, First in Peace, First in the Garden

Are you prepared to change in order to live a better life?

This week’s bunch of fresh cut flowers are Cardinal and Gold Fall Mums (apologies to the troops hunkering down in the fields of Westwood). Their rich autumnal colors signal the natural order of change that surrounds us. It also makes me wonder at how hard we humans fight change of any sort and what we are willing to compromise in order to avoid it.

“Is the paltry consideration of a little dirty pelf to individuals to be placed in competition with the essential rights and liberties of the present generation and of millions yet unborn?” George Washington, 1778
