the Way

About the photo: this flower is my neighbor's.  He always plants a few new flowers in the spring-time, though this one returns all on it's own, in the same spot on the side yard facing our house.  He is a retired Marine, so to see him, cigar in mouth, shovel in hand, kneeling down to plant a few delicate flowers, is always a sweet dichotomy for the eyes to see.
