i once hated this tree...
during fall (as if we have fall)... ok when all its leaves fell on the ground.
and since its located in front of our villa, we are in charged!
i also suggested to have it cutted.
that was during summer, since i dont stay long outside.
for me, this is what it seems to be...
i cant find its beauty.
the leaves, its fruits (i dont know if it is...) and the flowers that easily dries up and soiled our surroundings... duhhhh!!!!
i just want to get rid of it!!!
until one day...
i realized that somehow, the flowers are good...
only if i will just try to appreciate.
it will look better...
and if i will just be more grateful...
it will also give some delight in return :)
and its simple.
most of the time, we expect so much that we forget to appreciate things that we have.
we sometimes have a perfect illusion of what beauty is all about, that's why it becomes harder for us to recognize one.
i am crazy hoping to see sunflowers and calla lilies... forgetting that all this time, what i know is that only cactus and dates tress can stand in the desert.
and i overlooked its beauty and i still enjoy the shade of this tree and have its flowers for my photography... :)
