I brought some bloodroot into one of my flowerbeds about 10 years ago, and there it stayed, dependably returning every year. Then i transplanted some of these little white wildflowers into my white garden. About 3 years ago, i started seeing bloodroot, little colonies of bloodroot in various places: in the middle of my bulb garden (where tall things usually grow), in my blue garden, and under an old apple tree. This year i am finding them in the woods.
I love when a native plant naturalizes itself in my gardens.
As we meditate and then contemplate teachings that inspire us, beneficial qualities begin to naturalize and flower in our inner garden--calm, kindness, generosity. Perhaps the happiness of a half smile.
Be the garden you would like to see.
