Nature’s Delicate Side

With icy and snowy landscapes greeting me as I look out the windows, I sometimes go poking through older photos with some of them taken in the warmer seasons…..just for that occasional break.

I came across these two last night.

In a patch of downtrodden grass

Stands a sentinel.

Reaching tall….reaching for the sun’s warmth.

A splayed fan of fine, grassy wisps at the top.

In a burst of bright green,

Saying, “I am here!”

Little girl in white

With a bouffant of pink hair;

Dancing with a friend.

The first photo was taken during a visit at a wildlife reserve in August 2015 up in the Yukon.  Our group had walked over to where some caribou were grazing in their sufficiently large area – we could watch them with a wired fence between us – and in between taking photos of the caribou, I also found some other beauties in this spot….like that little grassy shoot.

The second photo was taken of bleeding hearts blooms in the front bed of my garden in the spring of 2015.  I had actually waited too long, and many of the fuller clusters had already passed the height of their generous blooming time.

    1. Thank you! 😀 Oh, you must be in a warmer climate, if you are anticipating yours to show up soon. Everything around here is covered in snow. 😀 I’m glad to hear that you enjoy the beauty of bleeding hearts as well.

      1. Oh, that’s wonderful! Enjoy those first signs! 😀 So….zone 9 a/b….I just went and had a peek at your blog…..so, southern California! Constant temperature with very slight fluctuations. No seasons to speak of….hmmm….there are times here, when we are covered in snow and ice (as in right now! Haha!) that the thought of your climate sounds SO appealing. 🙂
