While I was waiting after Mass on the Feast of St. Joseph to go into the Rectory for lunch, I saw the first flowers blooming outside that I've seen this year so far. There's still some snow on the ground in places, so the sight of these plants lifted my spirits greatly.
The primroses were obviously planted intentionally, while the other is just a weed that's made its way into the garden. The weed has very, very tiny flowers, but their color and structure are exquisite. I really like it, even if it is a weed.
Weediness is in the eye of the beholder, anyway.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
