Little Explosions

Amidst the devastating budget crisis facing LAUSD and the state of California, despite the decimating budget proposal before the school board this Tuesday....

in my own little backyard
things are teeming with life.
(Sweet Orange Blossoms)

Bursting with abundance.
(Sun-kissed Bearss Limes)

Exploding with color and fragrance
(out of it's climate comfort zone, White Lilacs)

and God-given bounty,
(a plethora of Early Girl Peaches)

proving that even in the most challenging of times, we are always provided for

and surrounded by the possibility of creation...
(Caribbean Lily, Scilla Peruviana)

which creates despite its sometimes harsh and prickly environment.

Or, perhaps because of it.
