peach blossom, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl.

Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.
~ Lao-tzu (604 BC – 531 BC), The Way of Lao-tzu

[I’ve posted this bit of poetry before, but it bears repeating]

The peach blossoms have been replaced by almond-sized green nubs, getting ever closer to peaches with each passing day. Yum!
