Don’t plunge into panic mode
Regardless of how dire and
Overwhelming circumstances may feel, but
Unless we acknowledge the alarming changes,
Get to work, take the initiative –
How will improvements for future generations
Touch our planet, be allowed to come to light?
I found these beautiful plants on my walk this morning.
Food for thought as a new week begins.
Make it a good one!
Lauren ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

You would hope someone would come up with an answer. Sadly not yet
I just hope we’re not too late. Thanks for commenting, John. Have a good day!
Yeah, let’s hope.
Beautiful and true, Lauren. I love the plants. I was just out treating my cacti for the white fuzzy stuff that gets on them… again. Hugs on the wing.
Thanks so much, Teagan! I saw these plants on my walk and was inspired. 🙂 Cacti have a beauty of their own. Hugs back to you! 🌸
The great range of cactus and beautiful flowers they produce in the US is awesome and these small garden plants are nice too.
I’m appreciating cacti more now because of the drought, Ian. Thanks for commenting and have a good day!
Lovely all around, Lauren… ❤
Thanks so much, Bette. Have a lovely week, dear friend. 💗🌺
Thanks, Lauren. Wishing you the same! 💞
Last photo has almost a sparkle to it. Lovely
I’ve always preferred flowers to cacti, but I thought these were lovely, too. Thanks for popping in and have a good week, Audrey. 🌹
Great title, Lauren. I wholeheartedly agree with your words. These beautiful plants seem to be thriving. 😀Have a great week!
Thanks, Erica, and I’m glad you’re in agreement. I’ve never been into cacti, but I thought these were beautiful. And since we’re in a severe drought, now would be the time to use these drought-resistant plants. I’m dreading the next few months between the drought and fire season. Sigh. One day at a time. Have a great week, too! 🌺🌺
We certainly have experienced a lot of change over the last year.
We sure have! Hopefully, there’s still time to turn things around.
Beautiful succulents, Lauren. And a wonderfully poetic call to action. Something to acknowledge and act on asap. Climate change is such a huge concern. Fires over the last few years have been terrible, and we’ve just had to driest spring I can remember. We can each do our part, but sadly, the effort has to be so much larger than that. I certainly hope our (slow) momentum continues.
Thanks, Diana, and I agree with all you said. Here in the bay area, we’re in a severe drought which is tough enough. But with fire season upon us, I’m honestly dreading this summer and early fall. And yes, the effort has to be much larger, as you said. Sigh…one day at a time. Enjoy your day, my friend. 💕
I found you via Book Club Mom. I like this post. Great advice about how to live life. Your photos of succulents are lovely.
Thanks for stopping by, Ally, and I’m glad you liked this post. I’ve never been much into cacti, but I thought these plants weren’t only lovely, but they were the right choice for living in a severe drought. I became inspired to write. Anyway, I appreciate your visit!
Lauren, a thoughtful reminder to us all about climate change – a topic that has taken second place to Covid this year but its dangers are far-reaching and going to be difficult to reverse. How true that this is not a time to panic but steadily and with conviction hope things move to help the planet. Aww … I love cacti and you have given us a plethora of them here. Glorious! No wonder they inspired your poem! Wishing you a wonderful weekend! 😀
Thanks so much for your insightful, wonderful comment, Annika. I hope it’s not too late for positive changes. But like you said, it will be difficult to reverse. I worry about the younger generations. So glad you loved the cacti, too. This is the first year we didn’t buy new blooms – less to water. Have a great weekend also! xo

Thanks, Diana! It’s good to see you! I’m behind on reading blogs, but I’ll see you soon! Take good care! 💗💗💗💗
Well said, Lauren.
Thanks, Mark! Have a good week ahead!
Thank you for your writings, Lauren. A great reminder to acknowledge and act. Beutiful pictures! I feel the outer world is a mirror for our inner one. I wonder where are we internally at a drought? Many blessings, Lisa xoxo
Thanks, Lisa, for your lovely comment. Your words have me pondering, too, about the drought within us. Good point and thanks for sharing. Hope all is well. 💜🌻
You are welcome, Lauren. All is well here. Thank you! Have a blessed day, Lisa 🙏💕
How well said, my dear Lauren.
On succulents… mom has always been very fond of them and lately I can see why! 😉
Thanks again, dear Marina. I never really looked closely at succulents before, but they are beautiful. Hugs, my friend. xoxo
