Several years ago, i planted some bloodroot in my white garden. This ephemeral spring wildflower is dainty and doesn't last long. I've been happy to see it spreading and jumping into other flower beds. This spring, i have several patches of bloodroot in several flowerbeds. Oh, joy!
This process of wildflowers spreading themselves around in a new environment is called "naturalizing." Bloodroot have made themselves at home and naturalized themselves in my flower beds.
The Dharma is naturalizing itself in my life, i am happy to report. The first seed of Dharma was planted when i was 30 years old, and now it is flowering all over my life.
