Alchemy of Sorrow


shattered petals fall

fragrant still

garden gift of grace

“Sorrow fully accepted brings its own gifts. For there is alchemy in sorrow. It can be transmitted into wisdom, which, if it does not bring joy, can yet bring happiness.”

— Pearl S. Buck

    • It seems like the color and fragrance are intensified this winter, which has been very mild. My granddaughters like to gather red rose petals (organic) and steep in either white or cider vinegar for lovely rose vinegar to sprinkle on salads!
