On the hillside, the grass is dry, brown, while the weeds are green. Dandelion, clover, plantain, and chicory thrive.
Is there a lesson in this? Perhaps the practical lesson is that for successful gardening, it is best to plant things which will grow readily in the climate. There are metaphorical lessons too. One about undertaking projects which are suited to thrive in the given climate. Another about putting ourselves in the environments where we will thrive.
And yet, there are times when it's good to fight for something even though conditions are not favorable for it.
