Photo Challenge: Beloved

Beloved – perennials represent the generations, and their resilient souls.  Years and decades vary; beauty changes, grows deeper.  It was interesting to see a photo someone took of my mother when she was very old.  I did not see her age, even though I helped with her care, so much as see her spirit and soul grow stronger.  Unconditional love.

For me, as perennials bow to rain and fade, they picture grace, acceptance, and resilience.  They are beloved.  I look forward to their new season in 2018.
