Sunflower Trio

Autumn, the time the sunflowers seem to flourish, illuminate their beauty and showy blouses.

Like us, the sunflower’s youthful looks seem to appeal more. Yet, within the external beauty, lies the internal pods, pods that burst, with sunflower seeds that are plentiful.

We, as humans, wither with age, our bodies change, and like the sunflower, we appear differently to family, friends, and others. For some it is a slow progression, for others it moves quicker.

I find beauty even in the decaying sunflower. It is the natural order of things, of the life cycle. The beauty is still there, still vivid, if one takes the time to notice.

Sunday Scenes – August 10, 2014

Beetle on waterlily: The photo above was captured at a local Japanese Garden.

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. -Vincent Van Gogh

Sorry for the update. I had to end my quotation “italic”, because it offset my entire sidebar, etc. in “italic” mode.

Pinkness

pinky

Color

What is pink? a rose is pink
By a fountain’s brink.
What is red? a poppy’s red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? the sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro’.
What is white? a swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!

-Christina Rossetti
