Have you ever seen this plant?
It’s called Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow (botanic name: Brunfelsia bonodora). The flowers last three days- the first they are bright purple, the second they fade to a softer mauve, the third to almost white. It’s a wonderful reminder of how quickly time passes and we should take pleasure in the little things, even small fading flowers.
The Japanese traditionally use cherry blossoms as a symbol to remind them life is short, and it’s beautiful. Is there a special plant in your garden that makes you stop and reflect?
