Violets

Violets are blooming in my yard–white violets and violet violets. The person in my family who mows the lawn is ecstatic. “They’re so beautiful!”

I do not remind him that in previous years he preferred the clean-cut look of new-mown grass, while i cried, “But the violets!”

This May, we are both in love with the violets.

Things change. Minds change too.
