This year, we have several celebrations from April 1 (April Fool’s Day) through through Easter weekend to Earth Day on April 22. There may be others but these two, plus other holy-days, are the ones we honor most of the time.
For me, the calla lily will always signify Easter. May this graceful calla lily growing out of lava represent whatever holiday you are celebrating this season. May it exemplify the simplicity you seek in your life and the purity you hope to develop in your heart.
Aloha! I can’t believe that exactly one year ago I started writing about my life on an acre of mostly bare lava.
Most bloggers take this time to look back over the past year and reminisce, or see what all has changed. I don’t plan to do that, because periodically, that’s what I do anyway.
All I really want to do is simply offer you this single bloom on my calla lily plant. What a surprise it was to see it when I went to my patio a few days ago! I was stunned by its simple beauty.
Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for joining me this past year. Please stick with me during the next year as I continue to learn and grow with my plants. One of my projects this next year is to begin writing a small book about ways to create a garden out of Madam Pele’s rich lava. If anyone has other ideas that might benefit the process, please send them to me.
