Delight.

To some (my husband, for example) the little blue, white, orange, and yellow flowers along the driveway are undesirable. While I welcome the color. The delight I take in the color these little blooms bring, reminds me of this quote from W. Somerset Maugham: “If the rose at noon has lost the beauty it had at dawn, the beauty it had then was real. Nothing in the world is permanent, and we are foolish when we ask anything to last. But surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.” And weeds don’t last.
