Cosmos, the easiest to grow but holy moly it can get out of control. Bees and butterflies love it!
I’ve just heard that a friend from my childhood has just succumbed to the cancer she’d been fighting for about a year. This is sad, yet I know I will succumb to the nasty inevitability that the world has not stopped. Yet I will also succumb to the knowledge that she is not suffering anymore but that she has also been reunited with her dear husband that passed almost 5 years ago. I also succumb to the feelings that all of this is part of the plan and we will all be better for having had her in our life. So I honor the word “succumb” because its such a powerful and meaningful word.
