June 22



Look at this cool weed I found growing along our road. The bud is quite large. When the flower opens, if you look closely you can see there all around it are green parts sticking out. When it goes to seed it resembles a dandelion, but it's bigger and fluffier.
Before I started this 365 challenge, I walked right past these kinds of things and never noticed them. It's amazing how much beauty is out there, if you just look around!

You certainly do a great job finding nature's beauty and photographing it for us one day at a time!

Thanks for your friendly visits to my blogs...

Very nice collage. You are right 365 really makes you look at everything differently.

Is that milkweed? It looks like it, but I could be wrong.

I noticed that you notice everything around you and find enjoyment in the little things. I think that's great. If I left the house more I might do the 365, but right now I'd be posting a picture of a plate, a chair, pill container...

I love this, Mari. This is a keeper to show my children in a botany lesson. I think there's a great life lesson as well. I can see this image and think of the transformation that happens when the Lord has His way with us. What we are now is not who we will remain. And, the best part is that He sees the beginning from the end and knows all things! Beautiful photo of a very simple plant.
