Ghandi in the Garden

Snow drops are perennial flowers that blossom annually.  They are usually the first to appear after the cold of winter and are always a welcomed sight, signalling a change of seasons.  Thin green leaves surrounding the delicate little flower herald it’s return.  A single white blossoms peers downward from the arched stem, as if to shield itself from the lingering cold and damp grey skies above.

The snow drop is aptly names since it literally looks like snow dropping to the ground but is magically suspended for the world to marvel.  The snow drop reveals strength and resilience beyond what the eye can see.  Each flower stares courageously to the dark ground and brings light to its surroundings.  Being the first to emerge, they epitomize the wisdom of Ghandi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”
