dried wildflowers in evening sun

Natural Pattern

I love wildflowers, even leftover from last year and dried in warm soft shades of amber. These dried stems of pokeberry, wormwood, Queen Anne’s Lace and goldenrod have been stripped bare of seeds by winter birds and stand ready to fall in spring storms to fertilize the next generation of wildflowers in this little edge of a parking lot.

I can picture this pattern on fabric or wallpaper or a carpet, shapes and textures and colors.

  1. There is beauty everywhere. We only have to look to see it. These glimpses of reminders of summer
    and the late days of autumn jog our winter weary memories and prepare us for the arrival of Spring, not too far away.

    • Some days the beauty is overwhelming, but overwhelming beauty is not a bad thing.
