A Spring Gift
Each spring I find bleeding heart flowers blooming on Eighty Acres. The heart-shaped fuchsia colored petals make me pause and enjoy the flower's bold color and unique shape. I will let the poets speak to the symbolism and romantic connotations of the flower. For me it is a simple reminder from the Earth Mother to slow down, be mindful and in my heart, be thankful for the gifts She gives to me each day.
