noticing splendor

noticing splendor

Tiny blossoms. They’re right there in my front yard, but I keep walking past, fast. And blossoms are short-lived! Time to slow down–just a couple of extra minutes before hopping on my bike–take a good look, put my nose to the scent, gauge how the light hits. Say hi to the neighbor lady (always sweeping!) and let her talk to me from the sidewalk while I snap some pictures.

That’s my lilac in the center. Daphne, bottom left (Hello, sweet lady! I thought you’d died an icy death, but here you are!). Periwinkle, geranium, lily-of-the-valley.
