Neighborly Flowers Reaching OutA batch of neighbors flowers in bloom on a late afternoon in springtime
We have a neighbor that has the most manicured lawn and landscape in the neighborhood. He's that rugged, grisly-voiced aging veteran that takes pride in everything he does. Disciplined and creative. Meticulous. The gent you trust with a problem. This is the gent that you trust with your sons. And when you need a laugh, there is a welcoming smile, wave, and a conversation full of dry wit.
Our neighbor is aging now. We send our sons over to help him out. When the cords of wood come, we send them over to help haul wood. When the leaves fall, they help rake his leaves.
So spring arrives, and there is no surprise that on the edge of his year, there are bright flowers to welcome all. They are impossible to miss. The flowers are on the street at the fence. Well kept and manicured, they smile and wave. One cannot help to walk over and look. And their welcome is neighborly.
