“First Clematis of the Season”
“Firsts are best because they are beginnings.”
― Jenny Han
The firsts keep coming. This time the first Clematis blossom, from our front flower bed. The first bloom has usually occurred around prom/graduation time, and has been prominent in many photos of our kids as they prepared for these events.
Graduations and proms are becoming not so distant memories and now the first flower is simply there for us to enjoy and evoke memories.
I’m sure as our children move through their lives, there will be many more firsts, some matching the blooming of a certain flowers and others, not. Nonetheless, I celebrate firsts much more than lasts. Though those too, are inevitable.
