A few weeks back the vacant paddock beside our apartment was cleared of all rubbish and quite a few mimosa bushes were pulled out. At the time the paddock was bone dry and yellow. Now, with a bit of rain (not a lot), the grass has grown and the mimosa shoots have re-appeared, an affirmation of life and resilience.
I added over the photo of the new mimosa growth another photo I took of stones under sea water, to link up with the life-saving water which prompted this growth. But when I added the frame, it took me back to my childhood when I’d spend hours wandering around in nature, picking and drying flowers and identifying them. I’ve come full circle here in North Cyprus.
