Nothing Remains The Same

Day beginning
       
I go up the stairs to deck and marvel how this very old plant always
blooms in January and the leaves look so beautiful.
This plant is put on the screen porch when weather warms
and it seems to never look quite this healthy at that time.
There is a lady bug on the lamp by my computer
I smile because I always think they represent good luck.
6 days ago the temperature was almost zero.  Yesterday in the 50's
and today will be the same.
 
As I view all this morning
it is a reminder to me that in life
nothing remains the same
it is always changing....

Beautiful plant. I have always thought lady bugs bring good luck.

Sallysmom, this plant is over 20 years old and so root bound but I dare not replant...

That is the hardest, the rapid and continuing change.
