The red Jatropha is new to the garden this year. 

I love her ever-present red flowers.

New life in the garden is an invitation 
to appreciate the brightness of new life all around.

Last Saturday we celebrated my nephew's high school graduation.
On the drive to Magnolia, I spotted  this beautiful mimosa. 

The tree was covered in soft pink blooms. 

The air was filled with the fresh, sweet fragrance.

When I stood under the arched branches, 
the floral canopy became a shelter of beauty and peace.
