April showers bring May flowers. Or, in this El Nino year, April flowers. What joy to see flower gardens springing to life. Color in the spring garden is made more dramatic by a background of mulch. The little yellow daffodils really stand out against the dark brown mulch, which looks like fresh dirt. In the beds that haven't been mulched yet, the daffodils are lost in the tan leaf litter--they are hard to see and just not as striking.
When we mulch our bad habits and unwholesome words and deeds, our kindness stands out beautifully.
