So it does. The distillation of winter reveals much.
More wisdom and beautiful picture. 🙂
Poignant and hopeful as we all age…Well done! As always. 🙂
It certainly does
Hits hard. I like this quite a bit.
I so wish someone would put together a plant ID book for only the pods, seeds, and so on. This would be a fantastic entry for such a book.
Very true words, thanks!
Very nice! I love the spare look of winter.
This bought a tear to my eye. Beautiful photo, words to remember.
So true, you know where to find beauty
Indeed! 🙂 ❤
This is beautiful!
Beautiful shot..! 🍁
As ever, your photos and words capture my perception of life in the world around me, and provide a smile and a reminder of the best attitude for my meeting with my day.
Very beautiful, winter photo and your words.
Great beauty indeed in a delightful pairing of image and verse. Thank you for sharing.
you’ve captured the essence of graceful aging here – so succinctly, it took my breath away.
Comforting: there’s wisdom in nature, beauty in all its changes.
seamless between image and words, each able to stand alone, but complimenting one another endlessly
