Ten Thousand Flowers

Reading time 1 minute

Today I am celebrating the ten thousandth visit to The Frustrated Gardener. I can’t quite believe we’ve made it this far. Thank you for dropping by, ten thousand times! In honour of this milestone, I thought I’d share this lovely poem, written by Wu Men (1183 – 1260) and translated from Chinese by Stephen Mitchell.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.
