Exquisite Beauty in the Ordinary


Triangular buds

Encircled by white flowers;

Artistic detail.


Who would have thought that the flowers of garlic chives could look so intricately detailed and, if you choose to look closer, finely formed and shaped….and all so tiny!  I was out in my garden yesterday, camera in hand, and in search of botanical treasures of all kinds.  I took several hundred photos – as per the usual, haha! – and will narrow the selection down to post on my blog, but for now I picked this one, highlighting the ordinary garlic chive (allium tuberosum)…..which, the longer I gazed upon it and snapped shot after shot (changing aperture, f-stop, ISO as I experimented with my camera), the more I felt drawn into admiring the smallest of details that nature has put into its creation.  Absolutely beautiful!
